Disobedient Objects, an inspiring exhibition about protest and activism I saw at the V&A this lunchtime

I found this lovely little niche with my friend on Monday, you can see right through into Liverpool Street station, itself dwarfed by the office buildings around it. It’s like looking into the mouth of a cave hidden in the mountains.

Far from feeling lonely or abandoned, I feel very much a part of what is taking place on the lunar surface. I know that I would be a liar or a fool if I said that I have the best of the three Apollo 11 seats, but I can say with truth and equanimity that I am perfectly satisfied with the one I have. This venture has been structured for three men, and I consider my third to be as necessary as either of the other two. I don’t mean to deny a feeling of solitude. It is there, reinforced by the fact that radio contact with the Earth abruptly cuts off at the instant I disappear behind the moon, I am alone now, truly alone, and absolutely isolated from any known life. I am it. If a count were taken, the score would be three billion plus two over on the other side of the moon, and one plus God knows what on this side.
