Together with Iain Borden we have been involved with the writing of the ideology behind a new architectural skateboard-able space that could be built on the Southbank, in London. Check out the press release here here.
We chose three architects, which the Southbank then commissioned, below are some of the design ideas that came back. Next stage is to take the design further with one of the architects who will work with us and some of the future users of the space to finalise a design to build.
Nina has arrived, another resident supported by Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs. While she is very busy writing her dissertation she also seems to find the time for some other activities, such as making a beautiful log table, digging, and generally carrying heavy stuff from A to B.
The Oavsett crew are running a video workshop to make your own horror movie trailer. Below is a trailer for the workshop and here are the details and booking form. Spaces are limited so get booked quick.
Last summer, super-collider invited a group of artists, filmmakers, astronomers, photographers, choreographers and curators to journey to Floda31 to witness a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event: the Transit of Venus. Their observations and artistic output from the expedition now form the basis of a publication and exhibition, launching in London one year on from the Transit.
Choreographer/artist Nissa Nishikawa filmed a site-specific performance in the forest, set to music composed by Ebe Oke. Cat Stevens and Archie McLeish will show photographs from the days surrounding the event, while filmmakers Kathryn Ferguson, Loren Filis and Fritz Stolberg used the Transit as a backdrop for new work. The exhibition also features artwork by Hazel France, Karima Adebibe and Rebecca Lynch.
Exhibition and publication launch/PV on Thursday 6 June (an east London First Thursday) with a ‘real-time’ screening of the 2012 Transit of Venus at 10:09pm. Exhibition continues throughout the weekend with film screenings.
6-9 June 2013 | The Wayward Gallery | 47 Mowlem Street | London E2 9HE

The cloggies made a Camera Obscura in Henric’s old house. A camera obscura it’s an analogue camera the size of a room. They blinded all of the windows with cardboard to make it lightproof. Than they made a small hole in one of the cardboards and hung a screen in the middle of the room. The outside was projected on to the screen upside-down. So simple – so effective.

This year in the north we have had an epic heatwave, the warmest on recorded. It’s all a bit surreal really considering we are one of the hottest places in Europe right now. In continuation of the surrealism, here is a nice bit of epic lakeness taken by the Oavsett crew.
