Blurble - the most spectacular thing

Simply had to blog this.
The Burble is a massive structure reaching up towards the sky, composed of approximately 1000 extra-large helium balloons each of which contains microcontrollers and LEDs that create spectacular patterns of light across the surface of the structure. The public, both audience and performer, come together to control this immense rippling, glowing, bustling 'Burble' that sways in the evening sky, in response to movements of the long articulated interactive handle bar at the base of the structure. The ephemeral experience exists at such a large scale that it is able to compete visually in an urban context with the buildings that surround it.

Bristol blog - Threenine

Just chanced upon a Bristol based gallery/blog called threenine. I've only read one page form the blog but it covers artists and news from the local street art scene. They've got Lokey on their books who's has just released a new print.

Hats off to them for sneaking a few pics from the Dreweatts show. I was down there on the same Sunday and at points during the day there must have been more staff than viewers. I only managed to get a few shots of some proper vandalism done in the loos. Those pics may one day surface. Anyway, I digress.

Ben Eine

New show from Ben and a new screenprint. A kind of monoprint looking affair of his trademark alphabet. He's currently in Denver showing at the Andenken gallery for which this is the show screenprint.

Some beautiful glittery canvass on offer along with other variations on his letter style. One of the best street artists on the block and at the peak of his work right now.
Check out more details from the show at and on the Andenken blog
Might have just scored one of the prints too. Fingers crossed.
