Ghosts in the Hyperdome?

By 28 March 2012 17

Took this photo of the temporary wall covering the entry to myer at the hyperome, the printing on the wall features small hovering people and half see through people.

Hopefully the new stores dont come with ghosts as the image would suggest.

I think the more striking feature of this image is how out of touch Hyperdome management are with their own customer demographic. There’s not a single example of a flannelette shirt, ugg-boot, mullet hair cut or article of high-vis clothing. Oh, and I challenge you to find that many people wandering around the Hyperdome at any one time who clearly fall well below the average on the body-mass index.

Not a single teenage single mum pushing a pram while juggling a toddler, where do they think they are?

That and for such a stylised image, I’m wondering why the girl on the far right looks as though they need to visit a chiropractor, shoulders appear to be at a 35degree slant, with the lower side curiously the opposite one to the heavy shopping. Details people!

LOL I think you’re out of touch with the Hyperdome’s demographic; we overweight, mullet-headed, ugg-wearing flanno bashers don’t aspire to any of those features of our persona, so putting them in an ad wouldn’t attract us!

Unfortunately, I don’t think any of the above is restricted to the Hyperdome.

I’d like to see the image revised to include fat people and mullet haircuts etc! They might think it was a mirror. That image looks like no part of the Hyperdome I have ever seen – not even close to the grotty, old desperately centre that I know. I recall walking into the Hyperdome when we first came to Canberra 10 years ago. I was shocked – I thought I had walked into 1983.

It’s now just plain dispiriting to go there. If I have to, I dash in and dash out – through the haze of cigarette smoke that blankets the outer areas.

This image is more like wishful thinking by Hyperdome management as to the demographic they’d like to attract. As for the absence of ” flannelette shirt, ugg-boot, mullet hair cut or article of high-vis clothing”, my last visit to the place suggests that they – and everybody else – have long since abandoned the place and have taken their custom elsewhere (most notably online).

Those are the Ghosts of Retail Past.

It has a certain Escher quality to it; as if escape is impossible. Mirrors reflecting mirrors, with the normal rules of perspective bent to suit the artist’s intention of creating a self-contained world. At the same time, it’s a bit like the works of Edward Hopper, with that painstaking and slightly spooky American realism.

So let’s call it Hyper-realism…Or you could see it as caught inside a Hopperdome.

And yes, I am ashamed.

The people near what I assume to be the escalator appear to be hailing a taxi and there are some tiny people up on the left hand side who are standing on a window ledge.

This is what happens when you give the work experience person a project and don’t supervise properly.

It must be the day before the Centrelink pays go out. So they would be over at the club looking for a man stupid enough to open his wallet up.

Until you read the text you are struck by the good-looking, fashion-conscious and friendly people in that picture. More like TV world than the real world.

In the real world – as seen by myself today around the Canberra Centre – you’d have someone just outside the doorway sitting on the floor begging while speaking into their mobile phone, a couple of unwashed disgruntled youth looking surly and the rest looking tired and annoyed with the slow-walkers who inevitably get in your way as you try to get around a mall.

I expect JB HI FI to have a legion of lean security guards outside all the time (It is the Hyperdome). If i were them, id grant entry the basis of hair style and smell.
It seems the Hyperdome is giving the bogans of Tuggers a gift.
