no one's bed

'How many ways can you say goodbye?
that was nothing

How many days, were in dreaming
in many ways just a lie?
In better days, I'd be dreaming
as my life passed me by

Now pardon me for trying
trying to tear apart

And pardon me for lying
it's just easy, so easy to start'

And if you did go to the show then you know there will be  really great work, so bring your butt here cos we are showing new work as well as some of the favourites.

We will be having a shop so if you are still banging your head on the wall for not having buy that amazing limited edition print you have not to worry; but there is not many left so don't miss the second chance.

There will be cold Kopparbegs on the day of the Private View to make this summery show just perfect.

A little review by LCC

Super Graphics!! visual report...

And after a very exciting week at LCC, we had to put the show down yesterday, so for those who missed it, I took a few pictures for you to have a look around.

It was 47 of us, showing two pieces each so if you wanna see individual pieces of each of us visit the 'Super Graphics' website where you can also find the work of the other five Graphic and Media Design pathways.

Here are some of my very favourite pieces, but the whole show was amazing, I have to say I'm really proud to have taken part of it. Click on images to enlarge, and for more details click on peoples names for a direct link to their exhibitions page.

We also had a very cool SHOP, where you could buy limited edition work from all the pathways students.

perverse repetition

I dream of smells, bright colors. banging noises, bits of music, body parts, chunks of time, borrowed past lives, overlapped. So disgustingly overlapped. I wake up and the saddest bits of them all are real.

‘We must discover some sort of death, whereby this maiden may be endure long-term and bitter torment; so let us kill this ass and afterwards cut open its belly, and after removing the inwards, shut up the girls inside in such a way that only the head be left outside (this to prevent her being entirely suffocated) while the rest of her body be hid within the carcass.
Then, when this has been sewn up, let us expose them both to the vultures – a strange meal prepared in a new and strange manner. Now just consider the nature of this torture, I beg you. To begin with, a living woman will be shut in a dead ass; then by reason of the heat of the sun will she be roasted within its belly; further, she will be tormented with mortal hunger, yet entirely unable to destroy herself . Yet other features of her agony, both from the stench of the dead body as it rots, and the swarm of writhing worms, I say of. Lastly, the vultures that feed on the carcass will rend in pieces the living woman at the same time.’

I used to visit you in dreams, at will. We would make love under the sun. And then we would slit each others throats at once when awake.  Now i dream of both. Dig and bury. Semen and Blood.

[Adjective] magazine

Another happy accident. While I was doing the photos with moon as the model for the victim an tyrant investigations, she asked me to take a few more for a personal project she has going on for a little while, [Adjective] magazine which I cant wait to see the first issue to get printed... so while this happens I accidentally appear in the magazine's blog, which is always exciting.
I'll never leave you alone
Breaking is part of the bone
My heart will beat against yours
Making sure we never turn into stone

Nothing about this dead could be measured by a common standard, and the contradictory impulses overtaking me in this circumstance neutralized one another, leaving me blind and, as it were, very remote from anything I touched, in a world where gestures have no carrying power, like voices in a space that is absolutely soundless.

the desired places

A few buildings away from mine there is this little place. I don't pass by it very often, cos is in the opposite direction to the tube which seams to be the only place I go to near my flat. It is small and just very simple, I wish I could use it, I have forgotten what for, all in uni seams to be about  sticking things in my sketchbook that demonstrate than when i  graduate I will know what to do in places like this. And for every page I stick on I forget one little thing I wanted to do in the first place.

the second fatality (I need to find new things to say)

'Horror is a shock, a time of utter blindness. Horror lacks every hint of beauty. All we can see is the piercing light of an unknown event awaiting us.'

taken from the notes on 'the unbearable lightness of being from Milan Kundera' at moon's blog...

Chromakey exercise

Last week, while the Well Gallery exhibition was being put up some of us had a workshop on Chromakey.. playing with green screens is fun... it makes me wanna come up with some silly project just to play with it... :)

Friday, 22 January 2010


In a project that questions the notion of identity and the public and private space, the personal and the impersonal, three Illustrators moved in my bedroom and surrounded by many of my personal things they were asked to respond to a space charged with its own history and make it their home. 

Leaving trace of their presence and having documented their findings, they would vacate the space after four days for the next intruder to come and build the next layer of their own territorial claim. 

This exhibition is to celebrate their findings and their contributions. And you will be able to see the various stages of this installation through their eyes as well as mine. 

During the exhibition a fourth  intruder will be Video Performing adding the final layer.  

Please note space will be restricted, so to avoid disappointment it is advisable that you confirm your attendance by emailing to with Welcome Intruders as the subject.

I will be very happy to see you there.
Thank You. 

If you want to read the brief they responded to, click here.
