BR2049.  Could this possibly be as good as the original BR?  I enjoyed it but it’s incredibly dystopian which is a bit depressing.  It reminded me of Mad Max.  I wonder if it’ll be referenced by artists as much as the original BR?  The most novel idea was the two replicants/robots synching.  Main theme’s are humans destruction plus the nature of reality.

Back to the drawing board!  I scrubbed off parts of this painting with turpentine and am going to start over again.

The Gaze.  I’m becoming very interested in how video calls disrupt ‘the gaze’.  I find video calls extremely unnerving.  The reason why is obvious.  I’m looking at a piece of technology and not into the eyes of another human being in another time and in another place.

I’d like to explore this feeling of discomfort  further – but where should I start!

Me looking at you but not really looking at you because you’re in another place at another time and you’re not really looking at me because you’re looking at a screen and you’re not looking at your screen either.  What are you looking at?  Where are you?  When are you?

Dan Rosenfeld articulates and tries to solve this problem.

Painting is now more complex but the colours are seriously out of balance.

We paid a visit to the Etches collection, a museum in Kimmeridge, Dorset, a couple of weeks ago.  The Etches museum is based on a fossil collection built up by amateur palaeontologist, Steve Etches.  Most of his collecting was done in Kimmeridge Bay where the Upper Jurassic Kimmeridge Clay outcrops.  I was very impressed by the Museum, both inside and outside.
