‘Off to the Races’ – Piece #1

Posted on

I’m mind mapping an idea for this piece. ┬áThinking of what ‘off to the races’ conjures up for me including:

  • Formal dress wear including hats – for the Ascot
  • Weird automobiles from ‘The Great Race’
  • Derby hats
  • Signs with numbers (for runners)
  • Racing routes – maps (e.g. Tour de France)
  • Legs running (horses and human) – marathons and horseraces
  • Swimmers swimming (triathlon element)
  • Race tracks
  • Car races (e.g. NASCAR, Indy 500, Grand Prix)
  • Racing to get things done (e.g. to do lists, watching the clock)
  • Olympic sailing and rowing events
  • America’s Cup yacht race
  • Timers
  • Officials
  • Flags, buoys, mile markers
  • Water stations
