A moral based philosophical discussion with my dentist ...... always different perspectives
My dentist is a scintillating conversationalist and a nice guy.   I always seem to have interesting conversations while my mouth is open.   Yesterday it went a bit like this....

 *"What did you think of the advertising of a $13 million horse race on the Sydney Opera House?"* 

Racing enthusiasts loved it and saw no wrong in using a Heritage listed Australian icon thought it was a brilliant idea while the general community people vehemently protested  outside the Opera House.  The interesting part is that the State government said yes.  I personally did not support covering the beautiful sails of the Opera House with horse race advertising.  

*"What about this? said my dentist, *What-If* an artist and his art exhibition was advertised all over the Opera House, would that be different?*   

At least it had to do with the arts but is that still a respectful use of our beautiful icon.  But, is this the way the modern world is going with technology, splashing colour into the Opera House as it is portray as a huge billboard and not for gambling etc.  Maybe people would agree to this one.

*"What-if the once very popular and revered Rolf Harris, another Australian icon, was advertised on the Opera House as bringing his exhibition of art and music to Sydney.   He is i the art world?  Would that be okay?"*  

Rolf Harris is now a convicted Paedophile having served jail time for his offences, his reputation is in tatters.  I could see and hear the loud and deafening condemnation now.  

The root of the matter with advertising and the Opera House is not so much what is flashed all over the sails, it is about the fact that the door is opened now.  it is is open slather for anyone, any group or anything to be put up there for all to see.  So is saying *yes* in the first place a good idea?  The door has already been opened by an clever horse racing enthusiast, will it now ever be completely closed?   There are two options now, keep the door open with an advertising policy or have the government banning any use of the Opera House in this manner.  

I go back to the dentist on Friday.  I am looking forward to another conversation.

what is your opinion on the advertising? I'd say let people do it every once in a while but not all the time, and charge them a bloody fortune!

Hey janton, I don't agree to using the Opera House for advertising.  It feels tacky.  Let the advertisers use sides of buildings etc but not a National Icon.

I understand, that sounds very good which means they'll probably rent it out now and it'll be an eye sore!
