these numbers delights me

a month of glorious collaborations – from a secret pursuit
to a snailmailart project with my mentor, life works perfectly

working as the artists’ group OffDuty:
rubber stamp cutlery print from Mog


rubber stamp leaf print from Meg

seeing things is one of my favourite pursuits:

saw a man walk out of a brick wall. . .

turned out to be a trompe l’oeil door

Education is not the filling of a pail,

but the lighting of a fire.

Manchester international Festival
seems a remarkable event with so many innovative strands –

from the wonderful input of Jeremy Deller celebrating people –
a hundred and sixty folk from all walks of life paraded on a catwalk in Piccadilly Gardens
to celebrate the people of the city for the opening event . . .
(see What is the City But the People? link to Guardian article)

. . .to the brilliantly inclusive Festival In My House
again inclusively embracing the extraordinary people of the city

you might enjoy the documentary about John Berger,
(we value you still)
by his old friend Tilda Swinton

– beautiful –
and talking of collaboration, something close to my heart
is a snailmail project with my mentor John Bently
who sent me an envelope full of images

what to do?
the aha dawned whilst I was not thinking –
a shrine to be made from Amazon packaging
 
reciprocating with a people & car image: on the road in Australia, me and the guys circa 1985

affixing a winged creature print of John’s
next to overprinting  on the cardboard folder
and so the dance begins. . .

the teaparty we held celebrating
the Solstice & the new courtyard
 
was a delight

sharing old friends with new friends
