Space is Ace

Tomorrow at Power Lunches in Dalston, my friend Melanie is putting on an event with her compadres from the Art & Science MA at St Martins. There's going to be bands, sound art, projections, edible sugar glass planets, and a very large amount of tinfoil. I did the artwork for the flyer. If you like it, and are coming to the event, you will be able to buy A3 posters of it (a few people asked already). I don't know the exact prices yet, because I haven't got them printed yet, but the b&w edition will be roughly £1.50 and the colour version more.... Read More...

Field Day 2013

I also went to Field Day this year. It was the first Saturday I had off work in about 3 months, so it was good to make the most of it (I also had to go to work the next day- somehow I looked and felt fine, I must be a wonder of biology). I managed to see most of the bands I wanted to, bar Toy and Mount Kimbie. I was there with my housemate, but we managed to keep missing each other. When I left I suddenly had a flood of texts onto my phone saying things like "I'm at the bar by X, we're going to watch Y in a min, where are you?" which might explain it. Stupid technology. He saw Mount Kimbie and found it disappointing anyway. I managed to find my Medway friends anyway, and spent some time with people from Reading too, which was nice.... Read More...

Regent’s Canal

The other week I went for a walk along the eastern end of the Regent's Canal with my dad. I used to live down the other end of it, and I've pretty much walked the entire length a lot of times. It's one of the few short canals around here, most of the others are long intercity ones.... Read More...

Revert to Disarray

The gallery has some kind of connection with a hotel, and they held another event there the following night, with Jim Sclavunos from the Bad Seeds djing ( a strange mix of Iggy Pop and novelty jazz records), and a repeat of the music. It was quite a  surreal experience. I don't really drink in fancy hotels anyway, it not being in the budget. Also, on the way there, we stopped off to get some food, and eat it in a little park, the sort where office workers go to eat sandwiches. There was a crown green bowls contest going on in the middle of the financial district. We felt very civilised, watching bowls before going to socialise in a hotel.... Read More...

Making Tracks- live cinema

A little while ago my friend Erika Pál had the animation she made for our MA show in Whirligig Cinema's Making Tracks festival. She made recordings of the students describing dreams they'd had, and painstakingly created the animation with oil paints on glass and time-lapse photography. Here she describes how she made it. She doesn't have it available to view online at the moment, so here are some stills from her website.... Read More...

Petrie Museum

Earlier today I met up with my friend Chloe on her way up to Glasgow, and we went to the Souzou exhibition with her old flatmates. When she went to catch the train, I decided to fit in a visit to the Petrie Museum round the corner in UCL too, which I hadn't been to for a long time. (I tried to say hi to Jeremy too, but his box was closed).... Read More...

Laine, Wolle

On Sunday I went to an exhibition about wool at Somerset House with Natalie. As well as the expected demonstrations of things like Fair Isle and weaving, they had interiors and artworks made out of wool.... Read More...

Saturday

On Saturday I did zine stalls at Brixton Record Fair and Bloody Icecream. I brought a film camera with me, and the film is at the lab still, but I took some (not fantastic) phone pics too.... Read More...
