Turner Prize 2011

I went to see the Turner Prize at the Baltic in the north east on the 21st October. 
The nominated artists are Karla Black, Martin Boyce, Hilary Lloyd and George Shaw. The Turner Prize presents the very best of current british art. 
My thoughts were amazing all the way through. I loved every one of the artists work. I would suggest this exhibition to anyone. 

Also at the Baltic is american artists Mike Kelley & Michael Smith. They call there exhibition 'A Voyage of Growth and Discovery'. 
I also loved this exhibition, it was amazing and something different. 

There was also an artist called Matt Smith who held a mini exhibition. He filmed about 6 metal/hardcore band members 'pig squealing'. If you like that kind of thing, then I suggest to go see it. 

End of the first project of the year

So I have now finished the very first project of second year. 
We had to design a house or apartment at the quayside for a client. I was given the client 'nerd'. I was happy with my client as I am a bit of a nerd myself. For the exterior we focused on simple shapes like squares. For the interior, I focused on neutral colours, modern but nerdy furniture. Overall, I really enjoyed the project, met new people and the outcome was very much how we wanted it.
