Inspired by organic structures, science, toys and kinetic art, he creates sculptural one off pieces alongside playful and wearable production jewellery.

Field trip to the show?

Hey everyone,

I haven't had a chance to see the exhibit fully set up and it's closing this week! So i thought i'd organize a last minute field trip, how does this Wednesday the 18th at 2:30pm sound? We meet up at the gallery, stumble around, go for a drink or four, then stumble home for dinner. I have to work at 5:00pm so i'll have to leave by 4:30. Hope to see you there.

-cheers, alastair

crazy metal machines

Hey everyone,



A friend of mine mentioned that some work from Maywa Denki is showing at the Japan Foundation Toronto. I heard about this collective group of artists/engineers/musicians/designers/experimentalists a while ago from a Metalsmith article. Their videos on You Tube are wild and their art is quite amusing. There is a special saturday opening THIS WEEKEND! I'm going to check it out cause design in japan… Continue

Alastair, one more thing if you are interested in a soundtrack for the opening you might look into the later music of Raymond Scott on Youtube.

Hi Alastair thanks for your kind words regarding my submission. I first learned about Sheldrake's theories in a 1993 documentary by Wim Kayzer called "A Glorious Accident", still well worth watching as it featured many other luminaries of the time. I'm sorry a theremin performance will not be possible, it requires about 6ft. of open space in every direction around it, not very conducive to a cramped gallery opening, I'm quite out of practice and frankly a shy performer and the practice amp I've been borrowing has left for parts unknown. I do plan to be at the opening and would be happy to meet you, please introduce yourself. Best Regards Ken
