Sleeping (Less) Rough on BBC Midlands Today

On Friday the 24th I made a trip up to Birmingham to film for a feature on the Sleeping (Less) Rough bed. The report was shown to the Midlands region of the UK on the BBC evening news. Hopefully you can view the video here

Many thanks to BBC Midlands Today and the Noise Festival team

Snippet in Icon magazine

This should have been posted up ages ago (sorry).... but we were mega busy preparing for 100%East at the time it was published (issue 40). How we smiled to have made it into a design publication! It's the first of many featurings hopefully.

Noise Festival

My Sleeping (Less) Rough and Wax Light projects were selected for exhibition at the Noise Festival at the Urbis in Manchester last month.

About Noise- "NOISE is not your typical arts festival. It has no physical location rather the central hub of activity takes place on the NOISE website making it the first 'virtual' festival of its kind in Europe! You can live anywhere in the UK and it is free to take part.

The best work will be selected for media showcase by some of the finest creative professionals in the UK including Peter Saville (Image-making), Mark Eley of Eley Kishimoto (Fashion), Danny Brown (New Media), Stella Vine (Fine Art), Wayne Hemingway (3D design) and Anthony Wilson (Word)."

So at the opening of the exhibition I got to meet Wayne Hemingway and also found out that I had won the opportunity to do a Noise Dream Job- two weeks work experience at Hemingway Design!

Noise had also arranged for two of the Sleeping (Less) Rough beds to be trialled by two Big Issue In The North sellers. The feedback has been good and I will be passing the results to a possible sponsor so that these beds can get closer to becoming made on a larger scale.

As a result of Noise my work has received press coverage on TV- 'Raw Creatives' (shown on the Community Channel) and in the Big Issue In The North.

Many thanks to all at Noise, Emily from Big Issue In The North, and Liam and Joseph for testing out the beds.

Lo-tec at 100%East

[ Click for big ]

Hello, first I would like to apologise about the lack of internet communication over the past month.... (BT took their time in getting us online, grrr)

Above is a montage of several hundred small photos taken at 100%East before the masses of crowds came.

Since 100%East we have all been working on a variety of projects. One project that came from 100%East should reach fruition in March at locations including Tate Modern, Whitechapel Gallery and BAFTA.....
