Cross-stitch

Here's some cross stitches I did a few weeks ago:

Kickstart

This is part of an Amiga kickstart screen, that appears when you first turn on an Amiga and haven't put a disk in. I made this to wear to the Amiga's 30th anniversary celebration in Peterborough.

Here are some lemmings:

What I did in July 2015

Woolwich foot tunnel

Became known as an "exciting digital artist", due to the Art / Tech / Networks event at Fish Island Labs, where my Art Hackathon team resurrected the Museum of Lies.

Played some games at the Wellcome Collection at an event curated by several_bees, listened to a talk about game poems, and went for drinks with figg and friends afterwards at the Euston Tap.

Joined nou and friends on an A-Z walk through the Woolwich tunnel, to celebrate her birthday, and then later ate food at the Royal Palace.

Went to messy_hair_girl's Independence Day party and ate some corn pudding.

Went to the Museums Showoff, and cheered Catherine's talk on the Museum of Lies.

Had drinks with Monika and friends at the Windsor Castle.

Went to the Research Thing meet up and listened to talks about remote user testing.

Visited St Albans and looked at art in the town hall.

Ate saffron ice-cream.

Went up to Nottingham for a day, and helped run a focus group and ate pizza.

Played Love Letter in Battersea Park with colleagues, waved to a little boy on a train, saw one of the great trees of London - the Battersea Hybrid Strawberry Tree, had drinks in the Mason's Arms and then in the Magic Garden.

Ate lahmacun.

NaArMaMo - National Art Making Month

I'm going to participate in naarmamo (National Art Making Month) again in August, and attempt to make one thing a day. This may be art, crafts, or something else, but it's mostly just a chance for me to experiment with making different things. I treat it similarly to NaNoWriMo, using it as motivation to actually create something and not caring too much about quality.

Icebergs

It was Monday morning and I was looking for icebergs in the skies above London. (I had just started reading China Miéville's short story collection, Three Moments of an Explosion.)

A weekend containing some brutalism

Weekend included:

Listening to sounds that reveal a slightly different London and trying to act inconspicuous. (Monument, an immersive theatre event that uses an app on your phone for the audio, in different locations, while you surreptitiously watch actors.)

Eating a cactus omelette at the Barbican, and watching a strange film where a man arranges a salad on a bed.

Walking in a line of people, slowly following a laser as it moves forward, through a dark tunnel with grey sand, which felt sort of post-apocalyptic. (Light Echoes at the Curve.)

Playing in a brutalist playground. (Fragments of a playground have been recreated at RIBA, from three London post-war housing estates, but it's actually foam not concrete.)

Sitting on beanbags in the Carroll/Fletcher Gallery and watching geometric shapes flashing up on the screen.

Wandering through Hyde Park, taking a boat ride across the Serpentine, seeing people that at first I thought were real but then realised they were sculptures (at the Sackler Gallery), and eating rose and violet ice-cream in the brightly coloured Serpentine Pavilion.

Walking from North Ealing to Ealing Common on a tube walk, through industrial estates and past mock Tudor houses.

Margate

Had a wonderful time in Margate with my mum last Saturday. Saw obscene pottery in Grayson Perry's Provincial Punk exhibition at the Turner Gallery; swam in the sea, which was actually quite warm; visited Dreamland which has now reopened; got dizzy on the chair-o-plane wave swinger; sat in a giant deck chair; got lost in a mirror maze; stared at the sea from the top of the big wheel of colour; flew in a hurricane jet I controlled with a joystick; rode a pretty galloping horse on a carousel; listened to the Bad Pandas; ate violet cream ice-cream; bought a ring made from the old scenic railway rollercoaster, which I went on as a child. (I like the idea of being able to wear a rollercoaster.)

The Hogsmill Walk

I completed the Flâneurs Dreamwidth community challenge II. (c) - visit your local council's website and follow a walking route.

Last year, I followed a route in the borough of London that I live in: Richmond-upon-Thames, but this year I decided to choose a neighbouring borough and looked at the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames council website at Walking routes around the borough.

I chose the Hogsmill Walk - A walk along part of the Hogsmill Valley to Tolworth Court Farm.
