I was lucky enough to visit the Science Museum while this was on show.
It was like being in the Matrix, very eery experience but at the same time mesmerising, strange to be hearing intermittent thoughts of random people on the internet in real time both funny and sometimes tragic.

We were very lucky to have had the latest production by The Paper Cinema come to the Tolmen Centre, Cornwall. Using a magical blend of live animation and music, we were taken through an adaptation of the Greek poem Odyssey. The interplay of intricate pen and ink puppets, creative lighting and camera work, projected onto a large screen was spellbinding. Being able to see the puppeteers working their magic just off stage was the only clue that you weren’t watching something that was pre recorded and post produced. It’s well worth catching if it’s on in your area, it’s not something you get to see everyday…or well ever.
There is something about Thomas Hetherwick’s work with which we can really connect with. After his amazing creation of the London 2012 Olympic cauldron, we were keen to find out more about his past work. Here is a quick round-up by the man himself at a TED talk, inspiring stuff I think you’ll agree.
