This mid-autumn morning has met us with warm weather and a lot of sunshine. An amazing day to spend outdoors, especially to cycle in Hyde Park. We stopped by Anish Kapoor’s installation and had few pictures done there. This installations has brought me back to my childhood, to times when almost every Sunday my parents were taking me and my sister to children theme park in Klaipeda. One of the attractions there – was a mirror room full of different mirrors which were distorting our images. Today I was playing again, like I used to do it when I was little.
Thank you for spoiling my weekend and closing that amazing installation in Turbine’s Gallery before I’ve managed to get there.There is no point to go and see it from the bridge. It is the same as to lick honey through the jar. Thank you.
After seeing so many stuffed birds at 80-artists-100-hours exhibition and inspired by them, coming back to studio in 3 minutes time I have retraced Marcus Mitchell’s piece that was selling for £400.

There was a lot of action taking place in London’s Design Museum. From mask making workshops, dance lessons, catwalks and so on… One of the most exciting parts for me was an artistic Gilbert McCarragher’s photoshoot on John Pawson’s bench. mmmm nice!
Studio Myerscough was asked by MA Curating course (Kingston University) to help with the design for their Made in Kingston show at Tent London 2010. Morag has came up with this colourful idea. I’ve spent two days with the students painting the type on the walls and back in the studio working with Morag on the rest of the graphics.
It is getting more and more difficult to define a concept of contemporary beauty. In urban society, where the hunt for perfection begins at an early age and modified ‘plastic beauties’ wave from the covers of glossy magazines, humanity’s struggle for perfection appears almost limitless.
This is my Contextual Report for my final year project. In this paper, I propose that there is no need to undergo expensive, psychologically and physically painful procedures in finding your perfect look. Essential parts of the human psyche – confidence and self-esteem – could be easily lifted and ‘healed’ not just by a few cuts and stitches made by the surgeon, but also by through various design contexts and practises. _More
