Below the Surface

Hear ye, the latest from The Disseminator’s fount of knowledge (via Dom via The Partners aka Superunion).

The linked website is an ephemera festival. It features the objects found in the Amstel River whilst it was being excavated to build a new train line. Everything found has been logged, photographed and grouped into a huge archive.

Amazingly, all the objects have been placed in date order as well. You can peruse the archive and also the images are available to collage and experiment with.


Three Hours Required: An Introspective Retrospective

Andy B’s latest exhibition is now ready to seduce you. Drawing from his vast array of collected design, objects and ephemera, there are examples of top drawer ideas, thinking and crafting; not to mention the fascinating, the never-seen-before and collections of pure wonder.

As Mr Bingo said last week:


“It’s nice to collect stuff, it’s nice to feel useful. It gives you purpose in life.”


The exhibition is on until Friday 1st March with a Private View from 4pm to 7pm on Wednesday 27th February. Andy is also offering guided tours from 12.30pm on 25th, 26th & 27th February, simply congregate on the ground floor. We’ve featured some quick photographs below, but they go nowhere near towards doing the content justice.

Enjoy. (Thanks Andy!)

(PS Mr Bingo’s talk is up on Facebook along with those of our other Conference Week guests, for those who want a double dose.)
