My work is talk about “What money can’t buy?”. To do so I use pixelated images. I’m inspired by 8-bit TV game Super Mario. The graphics are low quality and simple but still popular very much around the world, even though digital graphics have greatly advanced. Moreover, I am interested in the contrast and combination of low pixel images and exquisite jewellery.

Hi Teddy thanx very much! Hope you are having a creative weekend and get all the stuff done for the assessment. Have you sprayed your piece yet? I really want to see that - I definitely agree with Elena that you should try out some colours. I am quite fond of the micky mouse - I it definitely fulfills your aim of making the viewer feel happy.

See you on Monday :)

In a state of jazz

Time to shift gears away from science and into music. I play jazz flute and piano and when I read this interview with Branford Marsalis  (sax player who led the Tonight Show band for Jay Leno), it connected with some thoughts I’ve been mulling over about the metal art world. I’ll start with the excerpt and comment at the bottom:“You put on old records and they always sound…See More
