And so the journey comes to an end..
Today we have been busy preparing and painting the studio, ready to hang our work tomorrow. The pristine white walls now await our wonderful work, and I really can't believe it's all coming to an end. It's kind of crept up on me, and suddenly this project that I've been immersed in for the last three months is two days away from being finished forever. It's a strange feeling.
After college James and I went to the Barbican for 'an evening dedicated to the American suburb', two films based around the theme of suburbia and its artificial nature and utopian vision of life. We managed to catch the first one, Streamside Day Follies, which was beautifully shot (see the picture), however when they began to play Wonderland, the second film, it became clear after watching the first thirty seconds of a grainy London pub scene that the Barbican had in fact been sent the wrong film from America. This was rather amusing, although I would have liked to see the film.. Luckily we were refunded, but the director understandably did not stick around for the scheduled Q&A, clearly rather peeved that his UK premier had been foiled.
