I am still amazed that I was able to speak in this fantastic building to a great audience. The theme of the conference this year was ‘SUSTAIN’ and my talk title was ‘Me to You, You to Me (ad infinitum)’. Thank you to everybody at Typo Berlin giving me the opportunity. A couple of reviews from Paul Woods & Slanted Magazine and thanks to all the people who came to talk to me over the last few days.
We visited an small temple, there was no one around and it had a very good feeling. This is a Banyan tree — a huge tree — have looked it up as I did not know before why these trees are wrapped so the information I found might not be correct but — Sacred symbol — It is believed that after attaining enlightenment, Buddha sat under a Banyan tree for seven days absorbed in his newfound realization. I think these figurines are Nats, they are so beautiful and extremely characterful. (more…)
I am so pleased with my ‘Clementine’, Church’s shoe purchase today, I have been wearing them all day. I even made the effort and went into New Bond Street first thing this morning when the shop opened to make sure I got the right size. They are wonderful and comfy and now I am ready for the winter. I feel like I have slightly reverted back to my school days as I always wore this type of shoe not so posh I must add, worn with ankle socks!
Reception desk and graphics are all in place at The Old Vinyl Factory (website just gone live today — we designed). The new desk has been the bane of my life for about 4 months, but the guys who finally made it did a great job and I am very pleased I stuck to my guns. more pics to come.
I had an incredible week doing three workshops with young patients at the Royal London Hospital. So many lovely and brave youngsters and parents and they really appeared to enjoy being distracted by creating images. I am working on a project commissioned by Vitalarts to decorate 5 dining rooms in the new hospital. Lemn Sissay an incredible poet worked with the young patients and they created a collection of amazing poems. I am working with the collages and poems created by the young patients to make the new spaces.

She was definitely shining last night, I am so pleased with the effect of my new neon piece and she was glowing like sunshine in the space. There was a good turn-out at the opening of ‘Imaginary Menagerie’ at the Text/Gallery curated by Rebecca Pohancenik.
A massive thank you to Mike at Neon Circus.

After months of ebaying and accepting deliveries from around the country and Europe, making lots of new friends. Yesterday we tried out a few arrangements of the furniture getting ready to move into the café in a couple of weeks. Could not resist including my rug ’40 winks’ from the Aram store.
This is Liza’a and Artur’s (R2) poster for the urban interventions they have curated called Redundancy. We are very keen to see how the other designers have responded to the brief. The designers: Luke and I are the UK input, Liza’a and Artur’s, R2 (PT), Sulki & Min Choi (KR), Conditional Design, Luna Maurer+Roel Wouters (NL), Lust (NL), Frederic Teschner (FR).
Lizá Ramalho + Artur Rebelo, R2, asked Luke and I to create an urban intervention in response to their brief — ‘Redundancia — the Usefulness of Repetition’ for the EXD’11 Lisboa which has it’s opening week 28 Sept to 02 Oct 2011. Our response is an installation in the square called ‘Ooh la la — Celebrating Excess’.
Wellness: Guy Noble, UCLH Arts Curator, organised a great auction of Special edition prints in aid of the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre held at our Her House Gallery. We had a great evening, we had an auctioneer from Bonhams and sold nearly all the prints and raised a good amount of money. It was also a great excuse for me to get my chairs out and arrange them in formation. I have acquired quite a few more since the last exhibition.
That’s it! The witching hour has come! This is a picture of the Theatrics space taken just as I left to catch my train from birmingham last night.
The exhibition Home of Metal opens today at the Birmingham Art Gallery, Gas Hall.
The reviews are starting to come in, I am very excited to see how the audience responds to the exhibition.
More pictures to come.
I am just in love with these black and white prints, I have been for a long time and am enjoying pasting them onto as many surfaces I can get my hands on. It is definitely a phase I am going through. So cheap and so strong! (more…)
I really love my flowers and they are all blooming at the moment. Especially Peonies, my mum always has fantastic peonies. My main love are roses, my Grandmother had a rose garden and I loved the colour and smelling them as a child and as soon as I see a rose it brings back sentimental memories of the great summers we spent with her in Suffolk.
