Spent yesterday morning extracting DNA from strawberries – like you do! Bio Hacking on the Textiles Design Course at NUA - wonderfully basic science – and fun.  Raphael Kim set up the idea to explore the possibilities available to designers when exploring at a molecular level – I’m adding it to my list of things to do. Managed to see Layer Cake – somehow I had missed it up until now –some excellent ‘old school’ actors acting – who isn’t in it? supported by tight editing and a saucy script. but on the other hand – John Wick a film with a maximum 2 two page script (mostly grunting), directions that must consist mostly of blood splatter patterns and a revenge plot that is utterly ‘over the top’ but the whole thing is an example of wondrously preposterous ultra violence which unfurls like a deadly but beautiful poisonous snake.
