Festival of Love (nail through Time Out) & Appearing rooms -
The overall experience walking through with the bright colours really lifted my spirits, so many different families, couples, friends all coming together and having something fun to experience on a saturday afternoon! The attractions were simple but fun that everyone could join in on, I especially loved the appearing rooms, it was hilarious to watch people get drenched as they tried to run through the squares without getting wet. The entrance i’d describe as funky with a slight naturalness about it? I think because love is something that can be natural and simple, it wanted to reflect that, whilst using colours which you may identify with love and happiness.

One word. Brilliant.
An Idiosyncratic A to Z of the Human Condition (nail through time out) -Danielle Olsen, curator, says: “”Rather than attempt to define the human condition, this A-Z gives an imperfect and impressionistic presentation. As meaning-seeking and empathetic creatures, I hope visitors will enjoy the opportunities it offers to pause for thought, to wonder and to share experiences. Although the exhibition doesn’t reveal the meaning of life, it grapples with many of its questions and offers glimpses of how others have done so before.”

Enjoyable visit and it’s nice to get involved and actually be a part of the exhibition, considering it is all about us.
I thought the lighting looked interesting so I decided to take a picture. Sometimes all you need is a crappy iPhone and some good lighting!
What I won’t miss about home
V&A Disobedient Objects (Nail through Time Out)-
I actually found this exhibition to be a lot more inspiring than I originally thought, it was so interesting to me to see how people respond in difficult times, creating something ingenious in the response to a crisis. I also enjoyed the overall display using different materials that may have been used in these situations, cardboard, metal, poster paper, each relating to the topic. e.g. the ‘Speaking Out’ section written on cardboard, something usually used for protest signs.

Power of Summer, Street Feast (nail through Time Out) -
I was more than happy to visit an event involving food! Plus a super bonus of seeing some nice looking typography on the walls which made the total experience even more pleasurable. I also really loved the different companies quirky identities, i’m so used to seeing them on blogs etc that it’s nice to see it up close and running for once!
This probably already exists, like having a word of the day, learn something random that you might not have known before.
