Surrounded Islands shape

This shape, I can’t stop drawing you. It’s taken from a sketch of Christo & Jeanne Claude’s ‘Surrounded Islands’ which looks like this:

 

“6.5 million square feet of material was stretched over seven miles and used to surround a series of uninhabitated islands off the coast of Florida. The resulting work was visible from all around and visually augmented through the use of a shockingly bright pink.” See more of this incredible installation here. Lots of sketches and photographs.

Cockpit Arts: Lucy Fergus

My friend Lucy Fergus makes lovely stuff, her process is so interesting.

Cockpit Arts is a ‘social enterprise and the UK’s only creative-business incubator for designer-makers.’ It sounds like such a lovely place to have a studio.

Lucy has also created ‘Re-Silicone‘: “Re-silicone centres round the design and production of bespoke eco-conscious products and installations made from re-used rubber silicone.”
