Process

What is Art? Stuff you make? Things that are made? Or maybe something cause an experience. The inception of an idea is certainly where it starts, and so I start in the pursuit of inception, this is my process.

Life in the Bottle

That moment.

Starting in London was a no-brainier. According to the blogs and reviews I read, as part of my, ritual before I do or buy anything in this digital age, There’s no right or wrong time to visit London, I mean you could try planning around specific events but seems like there is always something happening, and is isn’t that went when you want to be around?

           It is very busy, I found traveling during non-peak times much more efficient. Saving money isn’t easy, I managed to find a back-packers hostel, St-Christopher’s Village, close to the places I’d planned to visit, all within zones 1-3. 

The cheapest thing you can do is just to have a wander around, if the weather’s nice that is. Central London is walk-able, especially of you stick close to the Thames, following Southbank from the Houses of Parliament, passing London icons like the London Eye, Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe, HMS Belfast and ending up at Tower Bridge.

Whether it’s a contemporary vista that soothes your visual palette or the classic aesthetic that peaks your interest. The British Art scene, certainly does hold it’s own. ironically one of the few spaces that could lay claim to this current status. One could question it’s very own status in this fluctuating climate of innovation.

Turner Prize-winner Prodger says criticism is what 'queer' people face 'daily'.

With so much choice, for it, it was a case of how to locate and navigate as much as I could, within the time I had. There are so many places to see and events to go to, all through the year. Here is my short guide to must see spaces.

People Say

That the post-Brexit Arts scene will struggle, so, is this the last hurrah, before artist are silenced forever?

These kinds of organisations were recently asked by Arts Quarter what they thought the greatest opportunities were for them in a post-Brexit UK. The responses were very bleak. "I can see none", one person replied. "I can't see any positive opportunities in this situation", said another. "Impossible to think of any yet".
