TH.2058. Scary?



Dominique Gonzales-Foerster's version of the future of London: giant animals, eternal rain and the futuristic shelter filled with bunk beds displaying sci-fi books. To me, it looks like something made 50 years ago predicting the world today.

Not Another Art Installation



Brick Lane, E1

Sometimes it's very difficult to distinguish between the art and the rubbish on the streets of East London. In this case I'm 99% sure it's the latter.

Quentin Blake @ Bousfield?



Bousfield Primary School, South Bolton Gardens, SW5

This mural was found at the Bousfield Primary School playground. Although there are no indications of its author, it looks suspiciously like Quentin Blake's work to me. Agree?

Telectroscope



Giant telescope connecting London and New York, near Tower Bridge

photos by Vedran

"When the sun illuminated the lens of the Telectroscope next to the Thames, it was, of course, still nighttime in New York. So the screen inside the scope broadcast back only an empty sidewalk silently framed by the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline.

But then something miraculous occurred.

A police officer and a street cleaner walked into the frame. Stopped. And waved.

The Telectroscope will be on display and open to the public 24 hours a day in London and New York until June 15. Artichoke is arranging requests to synchronize special reunions between friends and family or, the company hopes, maybe even a marriage proposal."

Miss Potter's Place



Old Brompton Road, SW5

"Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality." - Beatrix Potter

Funny thing is, the wall bearing this plaque now belongs to the Bousfield Primary School...

Banksy's CCTV Nation





Banksy's latest and the biggest work in London so far - his response to the "Big Brother" society that this city has become.

But, oh the irony! Neither the CCTV camera, nor the 24-hours security officer at the Post Office depot spotted a 3 storey scaffold being erected in their yard for 2 days, hiding the elusive artist behind a polythene sheet.

So, are we increasingly being watched or ignored as much as possible?

Attention!



Waiting for the train, I noticed what seemed like a very important information just above the Platform 1 sign. On closer inspection...

St Brides Church



St Brides Church, off Fleet Street, City of London, EC4


This is one of the oldest and most famous City churches.

It played many important roles in London's history and was destroyed and rebuilt many times over the centuries.

In 18th century it inspired a certain Mr Rich to design a novelty item that started selling "like hot cakes" and made him truly rich.

If I could only remember what it was...
