Thomas Demand

These photographs document the life-size recreations of scenes in German history constructed entirely from coloured paper and cardboard. They are such quiet pieces which is why I am so drawn to them, as any trace of human existence is erased.

John Frederick Lewis

I saw this painting last at the Watercolour exhibition at Tate Britain. It is painted by John Frederick Lewis of the bazaar outside the mosque in Cairo in the 1840s and the amount of detail you can see in the actual painting is quite incredible. Seriously worth having a look at the exhibition just for this piece.

Been looking at sound recently in a project I'm working on and the role it plays in video with its relation with the visual image.

Fay Killed Christ

Nana Fay came over for lunch yesterday and told me that a girl in her class at school had told her that she knew Nana had killed Christ. Nana went to go and tell her teacher what the girl had said and promised that she hadn't killed Christ. Her teacher said that she knew Nana had not killed Christ and told the girl, "Fay didn't kill Christ, she missed."

Walking the dogs this morning, I came across this house with two huge floral sofas just chilling in the front garden. Made me smile.
