I’ve come to appreciate these a lot more as of late. These days where time seems to pass so slow when you’re watching it, yet you turn your back for what seems like a moment and the day in its entirety has come to an end, and you have this feeling of dissatisfaction due to not completing ALL that you set out to do.
Monday was one of those days, well, kind of, I achieved a little more but lacked in other things. Monday was definitely a day of exploration and discovery to say the least.
With crazy bicycle rides from East to West, to S. West back to Central. Visits to both the Design and the Victoria & Albert Museum (two of my favourite public well known and visited museums in London to date) the day was just mad.
The Christian Louboutin exhibition at the design museum was definitely worth both the madness of the queue and the very loud and very unappreciative school teenagers (weren’t we all like that at one point?) that were allowed to roam throughout the gallery. It was shoe porn!
Major highlight was the holographic video (click for making of video) featuring Dita Von Teese doing some of what she’s does best. Also the overall show man ship of how the exhibition was curated and put together, much like a fun fair-come-circus-come-performance-come-garden space. Honestly if you missed this exhibition it is really unfortunate, much like the no photography rule, which i respected for this artisan of footwear.
Much of the rest of the day was just left to exploring S.West London. Apologies for the lack of photos, however being a cyclist in London is much like trying to avoid being hit by obstructions much like a child playing in an adventure playground.
I do wonder how other londoners do spend they’re off days.
Honestly, I’m so in love with this place, so picturesque. It reminds me of a place I once dreamt about only to be awaken by the realisation that I live in grey London (which ain’t all bad). Anyways just a few snaps from the trip.
Ciao bella Firenze. Until the next opportunity for us to meet.
Been a hot min but I’m back. Sorry for my abrupt departure, with very little traces of what happened or where I’d buggered off too. I’ve basically just completed my degree, mad rush for printing for the final pin and then again for the overly-hyped yet very much-anticipated Degree Show on Brick Lane. Definitely a surreal experience walking around the exhibition space knowing that somewhere amongst the graphical artists, illustrators, fine artists, fashionistsa/os, photographers, jewellers, and other arts crafts men and women that my work was hanging up and was on display for everyone to see.
I’d like to congratulate my class. We made it, after 3 (4 for some of us) long but enjoyable years. But now I find we’re in that strange and very awkward period where we’re not technically graduates though we are we just don’t own the papers/documentations, but it’s also that awkward-strange-scary moment were we begin to set off in our own very different directions where things change ALOT! However, I’d like to wish everyone the best of luck for the future.
