I had a dream I was hanging out with Jay Z last night, Rita Ora says he smells of clean trees, I can't confirm this but I will say he was a very nice man.
It was meant to be an 'Art' morning in the Bluecoat Chambers today, however it has been scuppered by my brothers windscreen wipers which majestically juddered to an unfortunate halt. He has gone to a garage. I have been left with my camera. And my music.
No disappointment, instead I seek to make my morning my own (what? I sound like an 'X' factor contestant hahaha)I have a couple of hours doing things I love to do - listen to music, look at art and stay gussied up.

AMAJU - Silver Heels
is one of a series of self portraits that explore Amaju's lived experience....................Amaju's photographs are transgressive intrusions into the 'norms' of mainstream culture, yet he deliberately adopts the rhetoric of the beautiful studio print in order to take it in new directions.
Bugsy Malone 'We could have been anything that we wanted to be'
From 1971-1973 Antin mailed a series of 51 photographs to around 1000 addresses.
He viewed the 50 pairs of boots as a single persona. 'They' travelled from California to New York
I like this a lot and I think the same is true about second hand clothes. I like that they are a still having a marvelous time travelling around and having adventures.

It's 'Our Song'
