The architects Kirkham Sheidow have got our house up on their web site – they did a fantastic job on the design and it looks great on their site - all the turmoil of the build is but a shadow - http://www.kirkhamsheidow.co.uk/live/evas-place/
Meanwhile the final episode of Boardwalk Empire has left me feeling bereft. The last series cleverly revealed more of the characters with the use of a fractured narrative and the flashback. The gaps between the now and then getting shorter till they flow in and out towards the end which is wonderfully circular and felt right http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0979432/episodes Strange Love - quite a beautiful slice of life - what you think is going to happen does but just not when you think! Worth a watch and enjoy the light. There is an intriguing show at the South London Gallery.  http://www.southlondongallery.org/ By Isabelle Cornaro it’s a study of order and hierarchy which deconstructs the idea of display – the vistas and framing that takes place as one walks around the pieces is the most interesting element of the experience.
An interesting day at Camberwell – two seminars around becoming visible – one about bookfairs  - we are attending three this year – Bristol, Leeds and Norwich http://www.slideshare.net/l.bicknell/004-bookfair and the other was about creating a catalogue – it’s interesting to consider why one would want one in today’s digital age – the materiality of the object is an important factor.
