I was having a browse through "vimeo" as you do when you are killing some time and came across this great experiment with type. It was was produced by some clever people from the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK) in the Hague.

You can catch the video on the link here:

I have also taken some snap shots of the film to give an idea of what they were doing.

Can't wait to have a go at something like this!!!

I watched Spring watch on BBC2 the other night and was amazed to see some of the work from sculptor/artist Kate MccGwire. The work she produces is very striking and makes you double take what medium she is using.

Kate MccGwire's practice probes the beauty inherent in duality, exploring the play of opposites - at an aesthetic, intellectual and visceral level - that characterises the way we conceive the world. She does this by appealing to our essential duality as human beings, to our senses and our reason, and by drawing on materials capable of embodying a dichotomous way of seeing, feeling and thinking. The finished work has a consistent 'otherness' to it that places it beyond our experience of the world, poised on a threshold between the parameters that define everyday reality.
