Art & Design

British Museum

Last week I paid a trip to the British Museum. I had a review of work day at uni for my research project (I'm doing a research/practice based MA in Sequential Design) and I felt like I should do something substantialish on the visual research side.... Read More...

Mirror exhibit

This was from an exhibition I saw at the MUMOK in Vienna. It's difficult to photograph well, but it was pretty impressive in real life. Bascially there was a huge room covered in mirrors and then there were various sculptures made of neon lights dotted around the room so they were reflected back and forth in different mirrors, creating different shapes and patterns based on where you stood in the room. Can't remember the artist's name.... Read More...

Leopold Museum

I was working in Vienna a few weeks ago, and I haven't got round to uploading photos and putting them here. There's plenty to come. I went to as many art exhibits as I could in the week I was working in Vienna. I've never felt so spoilt by all the free entry in London. I think I spent about €40 overall just on museum entries. It was worth it to see some things in the flesh though.... Read More...

Were Pigeon

I drew a werepigeon for Tukru . It was a silly private joke, and she insisted I drew it. So I did. I don't draw much. It's for a halloween zine she's putting together, you should make something for it (details here). It's probably good that I gave her the drawing before it frustrated me so much I threw it in the bin. This is what always happens when I draw stuff.... Read More...

Influence map

Scott made one of these, so I thought I would as well. His was far more coherent than mine. Mine turned out to be a strange jumble of art nouveau, kid's tv, the romans, russian stuff and a spot of literature.... Read More...

Notebook

When I was 17 or so I used to carry this notebook around in my bag to jot stuff down in. In boring moments in the pub, friends used to draw in it too. I managed to lose the insides (I've still got a few pages somewhere, but I haven't seen then in a while, I'm sure I'll uncover them when I return to Brighton and unpack my stuff). You can see where other people have scribbled stuff on the cover too, and polaroid stickers got stuck on, and then fell off where the material was so flimsy. Those polaroid izone stickers were a bit rubbish really. I scanned the covers a while ago, and forgot about it, and just noticed them on my flickr.... Read More...
