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.
The last three weeks has been pretty busy making some DIY. The location was the old container port in Barcelona, and it was for an event to highlight a different side to skateboarding. It was allot of fun working with an international bunch, from France was Antone, ZeB, Kamel, from England Daniel and Rich (sort of) and Spain Ramon, Luc and Danny. Big thanks to Neil for getting F31 involved.
We are pleased to welcome our new erasmus for young entrepreneur’s participant Sophie Friedel who just returned to europe from a 5 moth stay in costa rica. She will be spending the next three months with us, researching while simultaneously preparing for the set up of her business. Sophie has been working on the relationship between peace, war and skateboarding for the last 5 years, starting with an internship at the not for profit organization skateistan in kabul back in 2009.
The experiences she made going back and forth between europe and afghanistan sparked her initial interest on peace, war and skateboarding. Harnessing the power of sports in the name of peace is currently a popular practice within reconciliation, conflict transformation and peace facilitation in conflict environments. Sophie’s work focuses on exploring the nature of transformative change by looking at new theories of change and learning and at the role skateboarding plays within the peace and conflict industry.
We were invited to design, build and install some skate spot inspired crazy golf courses, for the European launch of Eric Kostons new shoe. With the help of Martin on the courses and Lisa with the flags, we got it done in 10 days. It was allot of fun and they worked pretty well, maybe Floda needs some…
