Bluewater?



Just a quick note to say that Brighton's brilliant l m n o p is now stocking Memories of Water - as well as loads of other beautifully-crafted booty (including Myles' photography book Colour)... Somehow, the book finding its way to the seaside makes us particularly happy. Oh, oh, and Memories... is also now available at the equally fantastic Book Art Bookshop in London. 'Buy now while stocks last' etc etc...
And here's a farewell look at the installation – which has now been painted over (all good things come to an end...).

Home sweet Home



Exciting news. We've just been confirmed as the commissioned artists for a major new public artwork to be installed on Coldharbour Lane (South London) early next summer. The work is called Home and will surround a ground-breaking new housing development being built by Notting Hill Housing Trust and Skanska (lots of eco credentials and made of huge designer Lego as far as we can tell). More details to follow, but basically Home will transform a large chunk of Coldharbour Lane using the words of 1000+ members of the local community, a CMYK colour palette (the building blocks of print) and a simple optical illusion. We're working on the project with local 'makers' MDM (who work for the likes of Anish Kapoor and the Chapman Brothers). And it'll be over 100 meters long. All good stuff. More info to follow soon.
