London Olympics 2012 logo Rorshach test
By davew on Jun 07, 2007
It's supposed to be a graffiti-style representation of the number "2012". I had to have this explained to me - hopefully when posters featuring it start going up around London, council workers will paint them out, just as they do with Banksy's works. (In fact, here's a thought - Banksy really ought to design a London 2012 logo and paint it somewhere near Canary Wharf so the 2012 Committee see it on the way to work).
Surprisingly, it also seems to work as a Rorshach test (the best comment I've overheard is "what is Lisa Simpson doing to that poor man?"), and a puzzle that folk are playing with to see what other figures they can make with the individual shapes presented.
All being well, normal service will be resumed shortly...
