I took a road-trip last weekend (with my Ricoh) & made some more moody motorway portraits. The skies were huge and the weather was weird.
(p.s. I wasn’t driving…)
… Continues. Nyurrzp znnyerp. Stop, Look, Listen & Wait…
… this morning, I started a little test (watch/listen to the video)… Burp* Let’s see where this goes next…
Here is the animation which I used to generate the silhouettes for the “Grace” installation. Enjoy!
p.s. strange, scratchy soundtrack also by me. Extra points if you can name the sample I used…
Come see me give a (short) talk and a (slightly longer) tour of the Karen Millen “Grace” installation. Event will be taking place at the Apple store on Regent Street - 16th September from 19:30 - YEAH! to book, please email: email@example.com or visit the APPLE booking page

I’ve made a fun little concept audio-animation for “something” called “snag” - who knows what? Tee hee. Stay tuned & enjoy the teaser. All animation & sound by me!
in case you missed the news on my Twitter feed earlier this week… I’m designing an exciting window installation for the Karen Millen store on Regent street in London - as part of the 5th annual RIBA Regent Street Windows project. Here’s a few lines from our press release:
"… Throughout September, all 25m of Karen Millen’s Regent Street store façade will be home to EKM Works installation ‘Grace’, inspired by Karen Millen’s Autumn/Winter 14 campaign… 3D scanned mannequins are animated, sliced and projected to generate a feeling of dynamic movement and to mirror the day-to-day adventures of Karen Millen’s modern, urban muse…"
That’s right, I’ve been 3D scanning mannequins & animating them… Go check it out from Sept 1st on Regent Street in London!
Today, I finally picked up my concrete cast from the workshop I attended a few weekends ago. Here are the results! Clearly I have a thing or 2 to learn about finishing… I was expecting the whole thing to be mega shiny, but it was only shiny on the side of the cast which was tilted slightly towards the ground (concave face)… Also, the aggregate sunk to the bottom, giving me a very gravelly bottom (!!) and a powdery top… And I obviously didn’t vibrate it enough as there are a fair amount of air bubbles on the top faces… Still - it was a fun experiment and I think the shape is quite nice - I think it could be thinner though. It’s at least given me some ideas for the future..!
