i realise all my posts as of late have gone back in time, and although i've only been back in london for a few weeks now, things are happenin' here in the present too! i've still got a bit more to share with you from my southern adventures, but thought i would tell you some london Tales too.
this one is about both -- home and abroad.for our first thursday late to accompany le corbusier, the gallery was buzzin' with queues out the door and a workshop by peter marigold and tony hayward called 'empty your pockets'! we were all recovering from the opening and i was hoppin' an eight-hour flight the next morning, but i couldn't resist stopping by to celebrate corbu's love of collecting. peter and tony arrived early in the afternoon for set-up and i was just in love with all the little props they'd made and brought with them, backgrounds out of wallpaper samples, stands and pedestals, backdrops, small wooden shapes etc. the idea was to get people to empty their pockets (or bags) and show us what they've got, allowing them to create their very own 'collection'. the idea is along the same lines as the 'what's in your bag?' pool on flickr, only i must say, way more funn! once the 'collection' had been assembled and arranged just-so, it was picture-time, and a lil' name placard was made for each person's display. here.
