FRIENDS, MINDF%$£S & HEART-BREAK.

























On Thursday I had some friends from Plymouth visiting; we spent the morning in Camden where we went to 'The Diner' and ate far too much food, I had a blue cheese burger. We then headed into central for a wander, I wanted to take them to see the Rain Room but when we got to the Barbican center there was a four hour queue so we went to the Bruce Nauman exhibiton, Mindfuck, instead.

On entering the Hauser & Wirth gallery, which is hidden away down Savile Row, we were first faced with a huge neon, flashing sign, (as shown above). It was definitely my favourite piece from the exhibition, although the green room was super cool to, but I now really want a giant neon sign to cover a wall in my living room - maybe one day!  

I liked the interactivity of this piece, you basically squeeze into an enclosed space, a makeshift room I guess, which has green fluorescent lighting. At first everything looks green, but as your eyes adjust it starts to change and it's, well, a bit of a mindfuck really. 

















































My boyfriend and I actually broke up last week, so seeing old friends and eating lots of yummy food was exactly what I needed. It's really, really sad, but we just weren't compatible and there's only so much work you can put into something without seeing any results, right?

  11. So sorry to hear about the breakup, but I'm sure you'll find happiness soon :)

    The green room looks intriguing. Does the colour change once your eyes adjust? I'm guessing, they go back to their natural colours?

    Lastly, anything with cheese is love. Cheeseburgers, cheesecakes, cheesesticks. Yum~

  13. The way I see it, its best to end things now and things to be a bit crap for a while than spend the rest of your life stuck with the wrong person..

    It all works out in the end.. plus your really pretty so im sure you'll have loads of offers to find the right one when you want to!
