I feel like I've running around chasing my tail. Pretty pointless since I don't have a tail. Anyway, here's what's been going on (and sometimes what's already past).
Aurally absorbed by Jon Brooks' Music For Thomas Carnacki - beautifully spectral found and made sounds. Happily hooked by the bait of Journey Around My Skull's blogpost, The Invisible World Pervades The Visible World - William Blake-style illustrations, both delicate and eerie. Endlessly distracted by the likes of discovering that vikings collected stone age objects (I knew there was a reason I called charity shopping looting and pillaging) and thought the objects had magical properties.
Can't remember where I put my photos of the Horniman Museum, but it's an unexpected olde worlde museum gem in south London that's always flickr pic-friendly - Anna's Mondo-A-Go-Go post explains why the museum's big wood and glass cases full of stuffed animals, birds and skeletons are so great, and her photos have a hauntological eye too.
Frederic Chaubin's long-awaited new book finally brings together his photos of Cosmic Communist Architecture from the 50s and 60s and, as things magazine points out, there seem to be a lot of people not only keen on such imagery, but also mourning the radical dreams of future past.
