turn your bass up because the clips don't have enough. shame about the ugly room and the daylight. the room was packed, so this could have done with being in a better venue.
best thing at 100% design - or at least the most startling - is the jericho hands tent. not sure if i want to applaud or scream.
on the adjacent stand stephen johnson does slightly less disturbing things with kitsch sculptured animals. check his website for the 'now isn't that lovely' section.
it's london design week/london fashion week and there are a lot of parties. tuesday night i was at the modular lighting and moroso show, and they kept filling my glass, and then we went to the hospital club with a colleague who's a member [he's the guy who is close mates with bek at the city space bar in moscow so there's maybe a pattern of upscale social drinking here].
by the time i left the martini lounge i was very drunk and decided to take pics on my phone on the way to the tube. i fell asleep on the bed fully clothed. the next day i was so sick i couldn't go to work until the afternoon when the room had stopped spinning. i do this once every five or ten years to remind myself why i don't get drunk. the photos were OK though.
at last, some new stuff on smallritual.org
looking at the dates on the menus there hasn't been any new stuff for a couple of years - just old material/website designs added.
except i just remembered this from 2007 which ought to be on smallritual.org too
