Google Web Lab

I was really looking forward to seeing this exhibition at the Science Museum, but it wasn’t all I’d hoped it would be. I suppose that in many ways it wasn’t geared towards me at all, but an audience for whom a web based sequencer would be completely fresh idea.

Another visit to the Oramics Exhibition

A couple of weeks ago now I made another visit to the Science Museum’s Oramics exhibition. I really like this small exhibition. It is quite unusual and they keep adding new items to it and changing it slightly, which is one of the reasons I keep coming back. I think I’ve been to it 4 times now.

I like how everything from her work is linked forward to how electronic music has developed. It’s interesting to see the progression and understand where things came from.

I almost certainly will go back again if I get the chance.

Alan Turing exhibition at the Science Museum

I didn’t even know that this exhibition was on at the Science museum, and I was only really there for Music day, so it was a real bonus to see it. Some nice exhibits and a lot of information packed into a very small space. I think I’ll need to see it again at least once if not more times.

Happy Birthday Alan Turing

Mr Turing would have been 100 years old today. His legacy to computing is amazing, there’s no doubt about that. I went to a big celebration at Bletchley Park in 2009 where I learnt a lot about him and what he’d done. Back in 2009 you didn’t hear so much about him and his work, I’m glad that’s changed.

Today I went to an exhibition about him at the Science Museum, and whilst it was only a small exhibition it’s good to see the recognition.

The British Design Exhibition at the V&A

I heard about this a few weeks ago and was attracted to it because of the stuff connected to Factory Records, but actually there was loads more there. In fact there’s almost too much in this exhibition, and not enough, it that makes any sense at all.

It almost leaves you wanting lots more in every category. I loved the mini, but then wanted to see a load more vintage and classic cars, and the Jag was great I have to admit. The games stuff and the ZX Spectrum just fueled my craving for a Speccy and a ZX81.

I can see myself visiting this exhibition again in a few weeks as there’s too much to take in with one visit. But it’s well worth a look as is the V&A as a whole.

WW2 Daleks

Another shot from the Doctor Who Experience. I thought that the WW2 daleks were such a great idea, and so I was really pleased to see them at the exhibition.
