The Day Dream


'All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.'
T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph

Twilight in the Palace Gardens



The Italian Gardens situated at the head of The Long Water on the north side of Kensington Gardens. Everyday for two years I walked past these gardens on the way to the Royal College of Art across the park. So at once they seem very familiar without ever having entered them. On this particular evening during summer it was fortunate to record them as if deserted, a chance moment when they seemed abandoned by tourists as twilight bathed the formal structures, and vapour trials criss-cross the sky above.

Orchard Spectacle


"Works of art will acquire a kind of ubiquity. We shall only have to summon them and there they will be, either in living actuality or restored from the past."

The Conquest of Ubiquity, Paul ValĂ©ry
