Our proposition was to create work based on the concept of baptism, but in a more Omnist fashion, that is to say, a work that reflects all religious beliefs unbiasedly, in the form of coloured light. Developing on experiments first conducted by Connor, our focal point will be a small glass bowl, filled with liquid and drops of various food colouring.StructureThe bowl was placed on top of a plinth, nesting in a cut-out hole.Spotlights contained within the structure shined from underneath, through the bowl. The light reacted with the food colouring, projected an atmospheric glow onto the ceiling. Encased at the base of the plinth, was a bass subwoofer. This will loop music that will work on two levels, first of all it will add to the ethereal atmosphere, but additionally vibrate the water, contributing to the effect projected onto the ceiling.Photo rights - Oli Collins, Oli Fowler & Alex Reuben.

evan told me to do this
its a very chilly day, perfect for some melancholy decemberists whilst making prints.
3 hand cut typographic experiments, continuing my studies into recuts of Garamond typeface. Sorry for the poor photography, I need to get a decent camera.
This song will forever remind me of the past 4 months in NYC.
Got to see the Stones on Saturday night, thanks to my lovely Gran getting tickets. What a show. Plus i got a ridiculous yellow t–shirt with a big tongue on it. Happy days.
Revised book cover. Finished now, it’s been sent to the printers so lets hope it works. I might put some examples of the spreads up at some point when I can be bothered.
I decided to enlarge the images to cover the whole cover, the white space wasn’t really doing much for the text. I’ve changed the copy slightly, it now acts as more of a labelling device for the images instead of a title. A possible nod to files and evidence labels that may be found in Scotland Yard or on the desk of Sherlock Holmes. Maybe not though. Who knows.
