1000 Cranes

A new project! The other week I was indirectly reminded (via twitter, obviously) about a previous obsession with Origami. To satisfy a sudden resurging demand to fold everything in half I picked up a few sheets of origami paper - and that was that. Well today a package arrived from Hong Kong along with a horrifying flash-back […]

Olympus E-P1

Ever since I started the daily photo project I’ve been looking to buy a digital camera. The iPhone’s camera has been surprisingly good but it doesn’t hold up to serious goat photography (scroll down). [photo was lost to time…] My choice came down to a toss up between the Olympus E-P1 (above) and the Panasonic Lumix GF1. […]

In search of Atlantis

Every get that feeling you’re out of the loop? People know something you don’t? I’ve been in London for closer to 2 years now, so it was starting to get slightly embarrassing that the nearest arts superstore I could recommend was over 200 miles away.

The delay might be a good thing because there has been a some excellent articles on the subject in the past couple days […]

So this arrived from the States today: [photo was lost to time…] Lemonade Movie (more info here). It’s the feel-good movie of the recession, following 16 creative-types who were laid off and decided to embrace a life they were missing. Odd coincidence that the UK recession died today. The press will have to find another source of fear […]

Conundrums

Look what arrived today! Typographic Conundrums by Harry Pearce. [photo was lost to time…] This awesome little book is full of typographic conundrums that need to be visually decoded into revealing a common saying or phrase. Very clever in their wit and simplicity. I was lucky enough to attend Cumbria University where Harry Pearce was asked to give a […]

V&A Decode

Yesterday I visited the V&A Decode exhibition. The exhibition describes itself as “bringing clarity to digital information in a visual way”. The brochure explains the three areas that are explored: “Code”, “Interactivity”, and “Network”. [photo was lost to time…] Yawn. Decode was so lame I can’t even be bothered to write this blog. To say I spent 40 […]
