Obviously there were the discussed about pieces like, The distorted Ariel, The rusty castle of Cinderella, The accident site of Cinderella, The tragic lifeboat, The bench flocked pigeons. In addition, they had a museum of cruel objects and collection of posters and flags.

すでにWeb上に頻出している歪んだアリエルと錆びたシンデレラ城、シンデレラの事故現場、
悲壮感漂う救命ボート、鳩が群がるベンチの他、苦痛を与えるような道具を展示したバスや様々なポスター・フラッグの展示ブースなどもある。

Dismaland

With the excitment I had of visiting a theme park, combined with the dismal atmosphere it created, I was left with a feeling I had never experienced before.

テーマパークがもつどきどきわくわく感とDismalで異質な空気感、なんともいえない不思議な感覚に陥った。

According to a local newspaper, the bemusement park has received high economy effect with more than 4000 tickets sold daily. That also boosted the trade of local restaurants and hotels. I felt that Dismaland was made by the whole of WSM in order to attract people to come sightsee.

WSMの地元紙記事によると、連日4000枚以上のチケットが売れ、地域にもたらした経済効果は非常に高く、レストランやホテルは通常よりも席数・ベッド数を増やして対応していたようだ。観光地化していないWSMだからこそ、街全体を通してDismalandが作り上げられている気がした。

By the way, it is the basics of hospitality to wait on customers in a friendly way with a big smile in Japan which, represents the Japanese proverb : “customer is GOD”(Actually “the customer is always right”). However, it enhances the value of Dismaland, to perform unsociable and lazy manner.
What is “Amusement”?
What is “Hospitality”?
I found that funny and interesting.

さて、日本では「お客様は神様」という言葉があるように、愛想よく、明るい笑顔で感じの良い接客をすることがホスピタリティの基本とされている。
一転してここDismalandでは愛想悪く、気怠い態度がDismalamdの価値より高めている。
人を楽しませるとはなにか。おもてなしとはなにか。
なんとも皮肉なものである。
