Femme Fatale

Femme Fatale

Here is a short video clip and few images of my recent durational piece at the Femme Fatale event on the 5th of November. (if you are having trouble viewing this video then just log-in to your FB account and then re-fresh this page, I will upload it directly onto this blog as soon as I can)

Occupy London

I have been spending a lot of time down in the occupy London protest camp at St Pauls this week. It has been amazing to be part of a truly global community that is genuinely passionate about the world around them. Somebody said that it doesn't matter that we don’t have the answers, what matters is that we start the conversation and there is certainly a lot of conversations happening down there. Every night at 7pm there is the General Assembly (GA) in which logistics of the camp are discussed as well as important political and ideological questions and ideas. Over the weeks the topic each night has ranged from the media, the environment, Palestine, internet and technology, violence and of course many different discussions about capitalism. Each group’s idea is then fed back into the main GA meeting in order to be explored further by the entire group.

The camp also provides an entirely free cafe serving breakfast, lunch and dinner for every person every day and a tearoom where you can drink tea and have a game of chess. This micro direct democracy in action is far from perfect but is without doubt a timely and inspiring alternative which proves that it is possible to work together without the need for hierarchy and unequal power relations. The fact that it is happening in the city centre of London deep in the heart of the financial district makes it even more moving

This portrait of me was taken by the photographer Levi Webb

Levi’ is obsessed with light and I think that it is his creative use of light which gives his subjects an honesty and directness. There is a truthfulness which comes across in his work, a trueness of the person which I think makes them wonderfully engaging. more of his work can be seen here
