Fire Hose Gallery opens!

Season's greetings folks. Is it all snowy where you are? Here in Bristol, there is no snow. Just cold.

Got some photos from the opening of the Fire Hose Gallery which happened a while ago. Drawing & Applied Arts were exhibiting in our space, and us in theirs. Their work had the honour of being the first in the gallery. More'll be installed in the new year.

There's some photos of work from some of the other courses which was also installed around the uni.

Exhibition Match

As part of a motion to get all the Junior Fellows working together.

Kerry + Kevin + DO

We are soon to be collaborating with Kerry + Kevin, which an initiative to establish a cross-participatory project between Kerry and 41 Kevins. Kerry is Laura Parke.

From Kerry + Kevin:

You're not Squash

Collectively we are joining a selection of activity based social groups, allowing us to meet new people, become part of a team and keep fit.

Thursday 10/12/09
We have been warmly welcomed by Trish Machin to attend our first Scottish dancing lesson in St. Monica's hall, Bristol from 7.30 - 10.00 p.m. No kilts are needed for the first lesson.

We are both looking forward to finding out who and what we are.

Dylan helped out Laura with the site, he enjoyed it.

Olie Down / Dylan Up

Olie's website has gone down.
This is due to hosting service problems.
It is unfortunate for all concerned.
He will be back shortly.

Dylan has updated.
He has finally added colour to some text.
He is having withdrawals from the lack of grey.
New posters and things.

The Print Exchange

Sent the emails out this week to selected universities.

We will keep you posted as people get back to us.

More info on the way.

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. We've both been super busy.

Coming soon.

The second years were given a brief called 'How' for which they had to perform a four letter word in small groups. We filmed them. It was really funny.

We Are Nimbus

Olie's badge (above) was made at the Arnolfini. I also have one but I can't find it.


Monograph is a monthly publication that gets sent out to subscribers of Creative Review. You can't get it in the shops I'm afraid, but if you can find a copy, it's worth a look this month.

Olie's grandfather made a magazine during world war two, while he was stationed on the front line. I'll try and get Olie to do an update about it, he knows a lot more than me on the subject.

However, I just wanted to let you know he's in Monograph this month, and I'm well proud of him.

We have a really long To-Do list. We thought it would be great to letterpress it all. We started last week and haven't yet got around to printing it. It's all set in 10pt Universe. We had to stop and assess the situation when we ran out of lowercase 'e's. We'll update on it again when it gets out of traffic.

Fire Hose Vinyl

Olie put up the type. It looks nice.

We went to Weston-Super-Mare to see Steve. He cooked a wonderful Sunday roast and then we strolled along the sea front. Above is a photo I took of the Old Pier. The weather was brilliant and the sea was dramatic. I'll upload some more once I edit them.
I'm enjoying all the little days out we've been going on.

This is where I lost a lot of change.

Fire Hose Posters

Got the posters printed. They look nice.

The Blackboard paint works.

On Monday the 26th the third years went to Burnham-on-Sea for the afternoon.

We went along for the trip. I'd never been, but I'm sure I'd go again.

We had fish & chips and donuts. A bit of this and that. I kept my eye out for a suit.

Geting to Burnham:
Catch a train to Highbury and walk in the direction of the sea.

Sea Line

We went to Cardiff to help out our friend and colleague Jez. We drew a three mile line though the city to link the Bay with the University. It was quite a long day.

After the line was drawn, Jez took us to some beaches.

We went to find some dinosaur footprints.

Above is a footprint.

The day was good, but very long. I hadn't had much sleep the night before and the walking line was a lot further than I thought it would be. Saying that though, it was good to help Jez out. He's got an exhibition in Cardiff very soon.

Exhibition is at Cardiff university,
school of optometry and vision sciences.

Opening Friday 30th October 6pm - Auction (The main event)
Friday 13th November

On another note, I'm setting up a new blog, Fine Young Fellows, for purely junior fellow related stuff. It'll be up sometime very soon.

Fire Hose Gallery - It's on the way.

This is Us

We spent the day in the photography studio taking nice photos of our work.
We thought it might be good to have a nice photo of us both.

Where We Work

It's been cold outside and warm inside.
