This really amused me. “Strong currents and Quicksand”. It’s the sort of sign you really want to see on a seaside holiday… This was hidden away on the waterfront at Portmeirion in Wales. This is the place famous for the setting of the original 1960′s ‘The Prisoner’ TV series. Quite a neat place to visit. be [...]
I like finger limes – Citrus australasica - I like growing them, how they taste and especially how they are shaped and what they look like inside. hmm… not sure what else to say about them though. This one just fell off one of my trees in a mid summer hail storm. That is nature’s way [...]
Got this Gibson Acoustic Robert Johnson L-1 about 6 months ago and am loving it. It’s a beautifully made small bodied guitar with a very loud yet subtle and smooth sound. It’s a 12 fret neck but feels a really comfortable size and it makes you want to noodle about on it constantly… actually it makes you [...]
I noticed this interesting arrangement of items yesterday while traversing the back streets of Chippendale in Sydney.

These 2 little bio systems in containers were set up in 1994 as part of an installation entitled ‘sssshhhhh’ in a shop window for ‘Walking the Street’ as part of the Newtown Community festival (Sydney) with Wayne Stamp. The festival is [...]
pogo sketch pro stylus by Ten One Design – nice feel and excellent for those freeform moments on the iPad or other touch screen device you use for artwork. It is hard to do some of those refined and detailed movements with just your monstrous finger…
“Poses” by Yolanda Dominguez - Ah this is such a beautiful thing… A series of public poses forms a tribute to all those beautiful people who contort themselves in such a casual way… ‘I always wanted to be a model’ kind of like a ‘serious’ public voguing…
I was impressed by this article last year on BBC about the people at Cornell University’s Computational Synthesis Lab (CCSL) using 3D printer technology to output food items built like you would a plastic rapid prototype object. It opens up a whole range of possibilities when you start to think about building objects from other possibly [...]
I’m very much interested in the small hidden boundaries and the cracks and crevices of life. This series of works explores a tiny section of these ideas. More later…
