I spent a long weekend in Masstricht in Julie & Maïna's lovely apartment. The city reminds me of a smaller more communal Copenhagen with cobble stone streets, narrow alley ways, the bridges across the river and the bikes.
Thanks to the delayed Eurostar service to Brussels, Julie & I missed the last train to Maastricht. We decided to make the most of the unluckiness and had a crazy night out instead with lots and lots of beer at Delirium and Bonnefooi.
A year ago I went to a talk at Camberwell College of Arts by Marie O'Connor who is part of Peepshow Collective and I have followed her work and wanders ever since. I just came across this cute animation that she directed, which mixes stop-motion and digital techniques. Recently she also built a large wooden installation piece with Chrissie MacDonald at A Foundation Gallery during the 'If you could collaborate' exhibition that took place in January. Marie does some amazing prints onto textile too. Multi-talented that's what that lady is!
The most amazing jukebox I have ever seen at Time For Tea on Shoreditch High Street. Preferably to be used when dressed in a sassy 1940's outfit.
