SQUARE ONE: Max Tynan

  Meet Max, one of the artists for our Square One exhibition opening on 2nd of March. Max takes photos to document his life. His photos seem to resonate a nostalgic beauty, maybe because they’re of something you’ve seen before or remind you of a good time you’ve had. Whatever it is, it got me […]

Terrariums – a little glass bulb of life

For my birthday this year, my sister got me a terrarium. Now, I’ve never been much of a green thumb, in fact I’ve managed to kill 2 cacti given to me in my short life time, so I’m not sure why she gave it to me, but I loved it. The great thing about terrariums […]

Hannah Zakari – an o/s discovery

Having arrived in Edinburgh, Scottland for a Jimmy Eatworld gig, Claire and I conveniently found ourselves in the middle of the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
