Potty Mouth #100years since Women given right to vote

In honour of the Suffragettes. #100years today since some women were given the right to vote, but working class women and women under 30 waited another 10 years. 

Still a way to go for gender equality

Long way to go for gender equality and yet 100 years since Women given the right to vote. Enough with your phallic, capitalist, gun and violence toting hypocrisy and rule ye mankind. Stop the war. Compassion and empathy are key to survival. Not oneupmanship and deviant, snakey, denial of deceptive, sly behaviour. Enough is enough. Play fair or we all die. Ignorance is far from bliss. Get a grip #boys

At night I dream of acrylic sheep 

(Thanks Lhoka for that one) 

Answer is yes I have been. I needed to finish a couple paintings that have been hanging around for ages all they required was some sheep. 

There was no need to stay up half the night producing more 10 small paintings of sheep, but being me I like to get to know a subject so often make lots of #spinoffpaintings or #preliminarypaintings #studies and #sketches 

One might say I have got sheep and sleep muddled, but this is how I roll. It’s ok I’m an artist and my work sells so baaaa! Baaaa! 

I 💚 #paintingbender

These are some of the stages in painting:


This is some of the almost finished pieces:

Painting Sheep rather than counting them

Stopped to sketch the sheep 🐑 on the hill above the valley where I live. Sheepcote Valley sweeps round to the racecourse. A salubrious area of Brighton known as Falcon Blanc. Tenuous link but I do seem to have made 🐑 and 🦅 ‘s my current subjects so I’d best look at some out in the wild. Passers by probably thought I was a right freak. WTF?! Who cares baaaa! baaaa! Black sheep, shite sheep have you any wool? Grey sheep, brown sheep have you any clue? ….spare us some change for museli would you?

Virtual Futures Collective – Alternative Anatomies with Stelarc and Sellars at the V&A Museum

Virtual Futures Collective,  director Luke Robert Mason hosts #VFSalon – Alternative Anatomies with guest speakers Stelarc and Sellars at the V&A Museum.

Virtual Futures collective with Stelarc and Nina Sellars at the Victoria and Albert Museum Digital Design Weekend.

Stelarc and Nina Sellers

Yes that is an ear on his arm! That’s Stelarc.

Stelarc is a performance artist who has visually probed and acoustically amplified his body. He has made three films of the inside of his body. Between 1976-1988 he completed 26 body suspension performances with hooks into the skin. He has used medical instruments, prosthetics, robotics, Virtual Reality systems, the Internet and biotechnology to engineer intimate and involuntary interfaces with the body. He explores Alternate Anatomical Architectures with augmented and extended body constructs.

Virtual Futures

Director: Luke Robert Mason

Virtual Futures Collective

Virtual Futures Salons are a series of highly immersive event experiences that encourage and promote original thinking. They bring together artists, philosophers, cultural theorists, technologists and fiction writers to re-address the potential of looking at our future through a techno-philosophical lens.

As you can see I am very happy to have found my fellow cyborgs and collaborators again.

Stelarc and Sellars – Virtual Futures Salon at the Victoria and Albert Museum 

Alternative Anatomies with Stelarc and Nina SellarsVirtual Futures at the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Digital Design Weekend.

A momentous day in the technobiosphere of digital design / cyborg / post human / cultural studies / art history.

Guest speakers Nina Sellars from Symbiotica and #VF original Stelarc connected through a shared interest in anatomy. Sellars, looks at bio-material and has re-claimed fat as an organ with greater stem cell yield than bone marrow.

Stelarc experiments on his own body and is cultivating an internet enabled, stem cell grown 3rd ear on his forearm. The combined artist/scientif/ic practice is a groundbreaking collaboration that challenges anatomical boundaries, opening up further potential for unexpected possibilities for the human condition.

Real mind blowing, body popping stuff!!! #postART+SCIENCE artistic practice.

Virtual Futures stems from The Cybernetic Culture Research Unit (Ccru) a student-run interdisciplinary collective founded in 1995 out of the University of Warwick’s philosophy department. It was associated with the work of Sadie Plant, Nick Land, Dan O’Hara and many other rhizomatically linked associates.

Alternative Anatomies with Stelarc and Nina Sellars – Virtual Futures at the Victoria and Albert Museum London 

Very excited. En-route to the #V&A #museum to film Stelarc and Nina Sellars talk at #VirtualFutures Salon. Stelarc is an original 1990’s #VF contributor. 


Renowned for pushing the boundaries Stelarc explores and interogates notions of identity and the post human. With a third hand and stem cell grown ear he could be described as a living cyborg…

The legendary art/robotics artist will be in discussion with Nina Sellars. 


“The original Virtual Futures Conferences (1994, 1995, 1996) were often portrayed as technopositivist festivals of accelerationism towards a posthuman future – the “Glastonbury of cyberculture”, as the Guardian put it. However, hidden behind the brushed steel and silicon, the jargon, the charismatic prophets and the techno parties the mission was rather more sober and more urgent. They were an attempt to develop a new interdisciplinary approach to confronting the contemporary technologisation of first-world cultures.

The Virtual Futures Conferences (1994, 1995 & 1996) saw groups of renegade philosophers lock horns with the future based on the provocations of evidence provided by the emergence of the Internet. Their predictions were wild, exerted creative licence and were unfaithful to every academic discipline.

Soon these events evolved into a unique, international gathering where the morphing of cultural space was accelerated by the head-on collision of science, theory, music, fiction, and multimedia. Today the conferences continue to connect audiences with one of the most important intellectual and cultural developments of our times – the technological extension of the human condition.”
