However I have mostly started to enjoy a life without the regular friends but instead start visiting the ones I had been neglecting lately and kindle new friendships and discover new things to do.
Last weekend we all went to Never Say When: 30 years of broken flag that consisted in a pan-european meeting for a weekend of noise and power electronics. Heavy stuff: my ears had suffered a lot from it when I am STILL hearing the whistling since a week ago.
To be Noted: I have taken a average of 200 pictures per night, to every single act (about 15), friends and random crowd. I have only drank a few cocktails n the first night (2 at the beginning and 2 at the end really) and for the rest of the 72 hours I had been sober and happy: so no drinking, without any intention of it really, was a success. Pictures posted on http://threadsoftheinvisible.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/day-0-unrest-prodshift-live-at-victoria.html, there is still the Sunday pictures to upload tho, stay tuned! ;D
The week was less stressful at work although still hectic.
Didn't go out last night but I cycled around and today I kept on cycling around and went to the Wellcome Collection + Crypt Gallery to see a couple of exhibits.
The First one on Brains
here's some random pics from it (until they told me I could not take any pics!)
Einstein's Brain below!
Then I went to see another exhibit at the Crypt Gallery which really impressed me.
From the website:
|BERLIN: the Forger's Tale|
An exhibition by Kevin Broughton & Fiona Birnie
Opening times: daily 12noon - 7pm
BERLIN: the Forgers Tale follows the life of Twentieth Century forger Georg Bruni using his original, highly individual visual 'diary' (produced by drawings made on banknotes throughout his life) as a narrative guide, and with the use of archive material, paintings, drawings, sculpture, posters, photographs and multi-media installation we explore his involvement in the First World War, Cubist Paris, Germany's social & political upheavals, the astoundingly creative artistic culture of painters, film-makers & performers, & the legendary nightlife of the short lived Weimar Republic. Bruni's adventures in both Berlin & Paris examine his use of multiple identities & their relationship to his collection of masks, his craving for the company and desire to mimic the famous - artists, performers and the emerging stars of the film industry, also his nefarious dealings in the clubs and cabarets of Berlin's nightlife.
The forger's journey provides many parallels with contemporary life questioning issues of identity, the importance of individual status, and our reliance on and desire for the manipulated information which contributes to and constructs our world reality.
Artists Kevin Broughton & Fiona Birnie are interested in the influence modern technology and the media have on contemporary life and their part in the construction of our identity and society. Using adapted found material to construct images, objects and installations that question and comment on our notions of past,present and future realities.
and the day was completed with a chat and a coffe at friend's place, not far from Euston.
Cycled back, cruise speed, through Camden and then home.
Tomorrow is another day :)
