Our sewing trip.



Getting the measurements sorted.



Pain in the .... 



Got to get an industrial machine - so much better!

Our 'operating table'

Carol doing the scary part of cutting out the mouth hole - we were too petrified it all would go wrong!

We have been on a sewing trip to the cotswolds where we used a studio space, industrial sewing machine and the help of Carol to work out how on earth to make our paper designs into three dimensional fabric panels. All in all its been really productive - we still have lots of finishing up to do but we are on track and the finished pieces are looking pretty exciting - just cant wait to get it in the show now. Fingers crossed it all works the way its supposed to!

Bjork - Skin tissue music video



Just came across this new Bjork video. Really like the imagery and the way science is viewed in an artistic way. We have been looking at skin as one of our fabric panels has some in and this will be helpful to inform us about different ways we can capture it rather than just some skin coloured fabric...

Our inflatable has been made!




Here are the first photos of our inflatable - we are really excited to finally see it after such a long time. It is being posted tomorrow so we should hopefully receive it early next week. Planning for the fabric panels is underway but before we have the inflatable we cant actually start producing them so the two and a half weeks before our final hand are going to be crazily busy with sewing.
