I visited London with my school in December last year. The city was fascinating. Here are some of my pictures. Sorry they're not that good quality and kind of tiny =]

posting a project on behalf of The Man From Icon... [18 Feb 2007|02:33pm]

a project from...


minimalism on the streets!****************

“Anyone can make a monochrome. Most of us probably have made one at some time or another, although we wouldn’t necessarily have recognised it. And we wouldn’t necessarily need to have made one, as most of the time we are already surrounded by ready-made monochromes of various shapes and sizes. The world is full of unintended, sometimes accidental, often temporary, and mostly unnoticed monochromes…Every city is a museum of the inadvertent monochrome”
David Batchelor, In bed with the monochrome.
From an Aesthetic point of view, Philosophy, Art and the Senses.
Edited by Peter Osborne. Serpent’s Tail, 2000

Send me a photo of found, ready-made monochrome from your city, town or village, along with details or where and when you found it plus any miscellaneous details you think are interesting. It could be an unused, painted over or papered over billboard or sign, side of a truck, fence round a construction site, side of a building, anything, any colour. The only rule is that you can’t have made it yourself.

send real stuff to
the man from icon, flat 3, 56 brunswick road, hove, bn3 1dh, uk
send digital stuff to
deadline: 30th june 2007 || download pdf of details here || documentation to all

new here, new project and i need creative people. [31 Oct 2006|02:32pm]

[ mood | busy ]

i'm a visual artist from Manchester uk and i though you may be interested in taking part a project which will get your work shown in the UK.
Heres more info...

project summary* I LOVE MY CITY:urban identites

We all have a personal identity with the city in which we live in or near too, weather its a favourite building, street or landmark, personal or unique experience, memory or event, or it's just that we have a love of where we grew up and each individual as their own social history with their home city.

To investigate this further I am calling for people to send me a personal visual representation of their home city in any medium through the postal system.
This could include:
Found object
List of words
.....anything goes. ..... no size restriction at present.

DEADLINE: 31/12/2006

Each piece of mail that is sent to me will appear in an exhibition in February 2007 in Salford, England. Each persons name and location will appear next to the sent work.

If you would like to take part in this project by sending me mail please e-mail artyrach@hotmail.com for my postal address.
If you would like to send an item that you think will cost a lot to send i can pay you back for the postage once the item has arrived.

thanks, rachael

the city that never sleeps [02 Apr 2006|12:43am]

hello. [16 Mar 2006|08:22pm]
sometimes faces trickle in and out slowly.
other times there is no space between the faces
in the hotel lobby where my feet hurt every day.
children pile into the white gm van with the hotel logo on the side,
they tell me about disneyland, their parents wonder if i grew up here.
the secret is
i can't grow up. it isn't allowed.
the first tree i drew was a palm tree.
i learned how to swim on the edge of the continent.
i did my homework on the jungle cruise.
i had my first kiss on the matterhorn.
my bloody puberty began in tomorrowland.

dear tourists,
i wish you wouldn't rush around my city... because it's really beautiful and not just an expensively pleasant waste of important time.
i wish you wouldn't yell at me because i can't get you a nonsmoking room or a room with a view or six extra feather pillows or silence the freeway noise or drive you to the park at any hour.
when you feel like running or yelling, look down at your feet please.
there is glitter in the sidewalk, and that's good enough for me.
