Smoke and Mirrors

Much like a conjurer seeking to dazzle his audience, the authorities in Greece managing the Athens Olympics are hoping to distract the eyes of the world wide audience away from the unfinished buildings and eyesores; by using banners to cover the buildings.

A team of graphic designers has been hired to manage the building dressing.

It is estimated that over 6500 banners will be used, plus a vast swathe of fabric to cover fences and other "bits and pieces".

The banners will be up between July and October whilst the Olympic Games are being held.

I wonder if the ordinary citizens of Athens are impressed by this "tart's dressing"?
