This ‘Gelatine’ video tells the reversed story of how gelatine candy is actually produced. Starting from wrapped candy, going all the way back it reveals a detailed and truthful story on daily foods and its origin.

Gelatine is one in a series of reversed stories on food for  ‘Over Eten’ (On Food) a tv show focusing on our present knowledge about food, produced by the news department of flemish public broadcaster VRT, Belgium made by Alina Kneepkens who is a freelance director and reporter (click here).

Today I Stumbled Upon: Something Calm

Three record labels each with a roster of artists able to ease you into the darker nights of Autumn and the first signs of winter. Clicking on the headings below will take you to the main website for each of the record labels where you will be able to access the full catalogues on offer. Predominantly you will find a crossover of ambient, electronic and classic styles. Sit back, put on some headphones and enjoy.


The name Serein was taken from a meteorological dictionary, it is used to describe ‘fine rain falling from a clear sky after sunset’. Located in Wales, Serein features artists from across the world. I came across Serein whilst slumming in my sick bed recently and immediately fell in love with their spectrum of sounds. The label provides an archive of free downloads, which can be accessed by clicking here.

Erased Tapes

Erased Tapes Records is a London based independent record label focusing on releasing avant-garde music which is widely regarded as very diverse in genres and styles. The record company was established in early 2007

Unperceived Records

UP is an independent record label founded by german based composer Hannes Kretzer. Like everyone UP love treasures and that’s what you might find here. The label aims to support freshly hatched artists, grow with them and give more people the opportunity to explore their music. 

When the Music’s Over

Over five days Worthy Farm is a venue where 170,000 people enjoy music, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret, and other performing arts, but for the remaining 350 days it is a place of work.  We conveniently forget this when leaving Glastonbury Festival considering the 500,000+ sacks of rubbish and the large assortment of camping gear carelessly abandoned by party goers. I wanted to capture a selection of photographs of when the land is at peace, as well as hunting down any telltale signs of the festival. There is something tranquil, but equally strange when walking around the site at this time. Instead of the loud music, smells of food cooking and the bustling crowds, you only have the noise of nature to interrupt your thoughts. When the music’s over, maybe we should all give a little bit more thought about the remaining 350 days of the year and leave no trace. I hope you enjoy the photographs.

Sea Child

On the verge of becoming a woman Sora is woken by a nightmare and decides to follow a group of men into the city in the hope of finding her mum. Created from over 9000 paintings, which took 9-months of working 10-12 hours a day, 6-7 days a week to complete, Minha Kim’s unsettling animation Sea Child draws you in with its distinct style and then punches you in the gut with the rawness of its narrative. All that hard work certainly paid off for Kim though, her 8-minute animation has gone on to screen at some of the biggest film and animation festivals worldwide before being released online to surprise and enthrall a brand new audience.

Directed by Minha Kim, Produced by Jacob Thomas, Cinematography by Sverre Sørdal, Composer Antonio Nardi, Sound Designer John Cohen.

Who Is Poly Styrene?

I recall four female musicians/singers from the glory years of punk in the UK 1976/79. These were Siouxsie Sioux, Gaye Advert, Pauline Murray and Poly Styrene of whom this BBC Arena programme from 1979 is about.

No. 8730.0

An unplanned stop on route to the Lake District at the Rheged Centre, Penrith, Cumbria. It’s a place where the arts meet  food, shopping, and cinema, including live streaming of opera and ballet can be found under a green grass roof. I took these photographs from an exhibition at the Centre.

The Lake

A peaceful place, a place of reflection, where the past and the future often cross paths. The Lake District, Cumbria, for me, is a place of tranquility and where time moves a little less quickly allowing the mind to think, inhale and take stock.
