This project was brought about to bring some vacant shops back to life in Ilkeston and Long Eaton. The aim was simple - take a closed shop and bring the window back to life with some art. Of course anything simple on the surface requires much paddling underneath but success. The link takes you to a poem about the project, and I'm very proud of the robot dogs!

I have been luck enough to have been included within an 'art in empty project' that is using a couple of shops in Ilkeston and Long Eaton. Currently this is the few in the Long Eaton shop. Whilst my work has been in the shop poet Joel Stickley spent sometime there. I'm now very proud that my work features in one of his poems.

Guess what got pushed down the 'to do' list? Back from Burghley House and the Land Rover sponcered International Horse Trials. I am told there were lots of horses jumping and dancing around, but I failed to see a single one! Still some 100,000 people came.
Next up will be the Harold Hillier Gardens in October.
