'The Ride of Life'

Wave A brilliant exhibition of contemporary automata - developed as a satire of British culture. It was originally intended to become a huge 25,000 sq ft automated theme park - but during the 90's recession the project was axed.

This mixture of beautiful, hilarious (and sometimes a bit pervy) pieces are now on display at Kinetica Museum in Spitalfields market - not for long,  but if you can't visit check out the YouTube movie here, set to a lovely soundtrack of  'I am the egg man'. 

My favourites are the larger than life naked bar staff, the couple gyrating on a bowl of  decapitated heads, and the freak at the fruit machine who yells at you and gives you the 'V'.

solviet bustops

they may have had some bad look with politiking and nuclear fallouts in the past but
with bustops you just cant stop the ruskys. The class and inspiration for seeking out a
creative stance in a  crushing communist rule is ever present.

put s our generic plastic bubbles to shame.

Trees that draw

Treedraw

No really.  Artist, Tim Knowles creates drawings independent of his own hand, using elaborate apparatus or time consuming practices.

Here a Willow tree shows its prowess with a set of technical pens with just the wind to guide it. Beautiful stuff, just ignore the high brow arty nonse that goes with it...
