Shoot the Wrx – Jeff Keen by Jamie Wyld

Brighton Museum and Art Gallery’s Fine art and print galleries have been taken over by a feast of Jeff Keen’s mind-blazing art, in a retrospective of his life’s work - Shoot the Wrx - on until February 2013. Collages, prints, paintings, films, books and found objects in the galleries attest to the uniqueness of one of the UK’s true experimental visionaries.

Playful conference by Jamie Wyld

On Friday, Miriam, Roberta and I went along to Playful conference at Conway Hall in London. Playful is a fun conference - as you'd expect - looking at design, games and interactive work, with presentations from experts in the field of playfulness. Varying between 3D-printed sourdough-enhanced game controllers to hand-clapping games to the art of suffering within gaming, the conference offered a special view into the world of play with and without technology.
