Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket " My work is created in a reaction to what we readily encounter in our lives, sidewalks and doorways, building and bricks. I’m just connecting the dots differently to make my own picture. Others need to see that they can create too, connecting their own dots, in their own places." - Aakash Nihalani (previously-blogged) Photobucket Photobucket

Studio East Dining

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Last summer, this pavilion designed by Carmody Groake, was open for three weeks on the roof of a 35m high multi-storey car park in the Stratford development site. It offered a unique dining experience in conjunction with Bistroteque. The cluster of interlocking structures were oriented to frame key elevated views of the Olympic site. Due to its temporary nature, all materials used were 100% recyclable: a scaffolding structure, lined internally with scaffolding planks, and bold yellow construction lighting snaking through the space. After dark, due to the translucence of the cladding, it transformed into a glowing light box. Link here. Photobucket Photobucket

Penny Cottee

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket With this series 'Toys' Penny Cottee has endeavoured to show, not only the details, beauty & personality of the items but also to create a suggestion of history, to remind the viewer of childhood relationships with toys from their past. The series started with a selection of Cottee's own toys, still very much cherished, and was expanded by asking friends for any contributions and searching for discarded treasures on the internet. Each toy is photographed as a portrait, and presented to the viewer as such, not as an inanimate object, but as a valuable and important discovery. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
