47 Days Left To Go—Is art different to other object?

It is a question no one likes to answer: In what way is art different to other objects? Answers such as ‘it is more meaningful’, ‘it has intent’, ‘it is more beautiful’, and ‘it is culture’ don’t quite cut it—especially if you value the thought, integrity and ingenuity that goes into first-class design that is… Continue reading 47 Days Left To Go—Is art different to other object?

53 Days Left To Go—When art is misplaced

In one way of looking at it, everything that occurs does so at a specific place; it occurs at a specific latitude, longitude and point in time. The ice-cream you bought the other day while guiltily looking over your shoulder occurred at a pin-point on a map with a timestamp, whether someone saw you or not.

55 Days Left To Go—Fantastic, my first pledge!

Truly, I was just putting the tablecloth on the table when word of my first pledge came through. As with all good things in life, you can’t image how it feels until it actually happens.

With no supporters, YET, I can’t help but begin to dread my odds. In an attempt to assuage the dread I have done some digging, only to discover it is justified. Before I delve,… Continue reading 59 Days Left To Go—what are the Odds?

60 Days Left To Go—Launch

Brakes screeching, cars skidding, cars piling-up—because: I just pressed LAUNCH for ‘Studio: Key’ on the crowdfunding platform—Pozible. Well, that’s how it felt as my mouse clicked and before the realisation dawned that I could hear no traffic incident on the road outside as a result, at all. To launch I had to climb what felt like Mt Everest only to discover,… Continue reading 60 Days Left To Go—Launch
