This August I was honoured to spend an evening filming a talk by the award-winning Turkish novelist and public intellectual Elif Shafak. The evening was organised by CARAVAN, an East-West peacebuilding celebration of art and thought. The evening included a lecture, conversation and audience Q&A, Elif focused on building bridges, not walls. Elif Shafak was also awarded the first CARAVAN Award for Peacebuilding and the Arts.
I miss wood carving and one of my niece’s birthdays was coming up, so I decided to knock out some furniture for her dolls’ house.
It’s a set of table and chairs carve from wood I found in a local woodland. Check out the gallery.
Batch 1 (minus those sold from it already) will be available at the Urban Bazaar, and my first creations from Batch 2 will make their first appearance at the ME Craft Market. I look forward to seeing you all there!
Make.Hack.Do. was a three day festival I created and ran for the Science Museum in mid 2014.
This video I presented and produced with Chocolate Films gives you a taste and an overview of what went on over the festival.
October 2013 saw the opening of ‘3D: printing the future’, an exhibition all about the explosion of 3D printing. With my colleagues we researched the most interesting commercial, industrial and medical applications whilst delving into personal stories of the pioneers, innovators and early users of 3D printed applications.
The exhibition ran for over a year and it’s hard to convey the excitement of knowing that millions of visitors would have seen my handiwork.
