Dear Shaded Viewers,

I was interviewed for my first podcast today by Chris Ritke

Tinko sent me the picture of the notice a few days ago but it had gotten lost in cyber space and arrived today. Sad state of affairs, remember I told you about the British Indian PR that was worried to wear his i-pod on the street for fear of being thought of as a terrorist. Very unsettling.

Clearly the doorbell at SHOWstudio and the stairway at Zandra’s museum.



The two images, if you have not already guessed, are of Zandra’s first show after ten years. It was before the museum opened. If you know the Central St. Martins teachers you can see them all smiling in the first row.
