EVIDENCE OF SITTING.
There is evidence of human activity and energy everywhere. We also need time to sit and rest, contemplate, wait, watch, be entertained, impress, to sit outside and in. We need designs that reflect all of these actions. I had never really sat (see?) and noticed the variety of seating we use, as the everyday is generally missed or ignored. The familiar is just there. This set of photographs looks at the beauty of the everyday and gives sitting a front seat. The ordered, the disordered, the ignored and discarded. I'm standing up for seats.
BLEACH REUNION GIG
'It’s seemed like the blink of an eye, but 25 years have passed since we embarked on an adventure that took us on a journey of friendship, to far-flung amazing places and, at times, to the edge of our sanity.
Now we’re going to get together for *one gig, reunited across huge distances by our need to know whether we can finally make this what we’d always wanted it to be.
A lot has happened in the last 25 years, but we are still, underneath it all, Singleton, Singleton, Carson, Scott…
Follow us, it’ll be all kinds of weird, of that there can be no doubt.'
Salli Radford. Lead singer of Bleach.
* it was two gigs eventually. The original idea was a gig at the wedding of Nicks (the bassist) sisters wedding. A second paying gig was added after a local promoter heard they were planning to play again.
Taken from her blog which you can read here :
Video of 'Shotgun' by Bleach here:
I had the privilege of following Salli on the run-up to the reunion gigs of Bleach, an early 90's indie band, which Salli was the lead singer. The photographs are of her before the gigs, during and after it was all over. It was an emotional journey for her as they has not played together for 22 years.
I have used extracts of Salli's blog under each photograph.
