A recent trip to Brick Lane’s Junkyard Golf got me thinking about old ideas being reimagined, and our connection with vintage goods and pop culture.
Junkyard Golf is indoor crazy golf with a bar attached, and despite the flashy website and the sugar-loaded cocktails on offer, in essence it’s the same game I played twenty-five years ago. Yet it’s incredibly popular and current.
In a world that moves so fast and is so forward-thinking, with near-constant advances in technology, why do we look back to classic activities like crazy golf? And it’s not just crazy golf, – think Polaroid cameras, retro games, vintage clothing, eighties film reboots, classic sweets – they’re all riding high on a wave of popularity again.
