  • Dalston House

    July 4th 2013 katie

    Dalston House is a new temporary art installation by Leandro Elrich in association with the Barbican Centre. It’s right by Dalston Junction station, a short walk from my house, so my sister and I jaunted down there the other day. The mind-bending installation is a perfect replica of a period house facade, laid out on…

  • Lichtenstein: A Retrospective at the Tate Modern

    February 20th 2013 katie

    Lucky me – the Tate Modern invited me to a press preview of their new Lichtenstein retrospective on Monday. He’s one of my favourite artists so it was quite a treat to get a quiet(er) viewing of the show before the crowds. Oh, and I was allowed to snap photos! Besides the comic-strip ‘war and…

    What started as a 24-hour ‘Hack Day’ project at my agency, Poke, has turned into legitimate charity fundraising website – meet The 100 Project. The idea’s simple: 52 artists have donated an artwork, one of which will be auctioned off each week for a year with a starting price of £100. For every artwork that…

    Some photos and videos from the Kinetica art fair this weekend. I used a little CCTV lens on my E-P1 to take these, same as last year. Patrick Heide’s Tunnel View – what appeared to be a never-ending wormhole of twinkly colour-changing lights. Dancing Robot by GV Art A machine to replicate the finger-operated ‘singing…

  • Arty house

    January 3rd 2011 katie

    We’ve spent the days between Christmas and New Year doing some jobs around the house – mostly drilling into the walls to put up art and shelving. It’s starting to look much more homely now. The living room has a red and gold scheme against the pale grey walls. We’re just waiting to put up…

  • Berlin: Street Art

    June 18th 2010 katie

    Berlin is full of graffiti and street art. Most of the time it’s quantity over quality, with every building’s ground floor dabbed with tags and scribbles which just ruins the otherwise attractive townhouses. But there are several more organised areas where serious street artists go to work creating really interesting things. Tacheles is a huge…

  • Alphabet Street

    June 16th 2010 katie

    This street art along Middlesex Street, E1, really brightens up the closed shop front grilles. P.S. If you’re ever in this hood, be sure to check out The Flying Burrito at shop F – the Choc Norris veggie version is a revelation.
