Chances are if you are reading this you didn’t grow up in the 1960s. But it’s a good bet that you know of Yoko Ono.

Summer 2012, without a doubt belongs to London.
From the Queen’s Jubilee, celebrating Her Majesty’s 60 years on the throne, to the Olympics starting in July and all the festivities in between, London truly is the place to be.
And it seems the city is determined to celebrate all things British – out loud, and proud, with pomp and ceremony like only the British can do, with department store, Selfridges leading the way.

Warning: the following exhibition contains images and exhibits that some visitors might find disturbing.
This is what greets you as you enter into the Brains: the mind as matter exhibition at the Wellcome Collection.
With real human brains on display it’s a fair warning to the more squeamish of us – but if you can get over the gross factor it is well worth a visit.

As mentioned in my previous post, this past weekend I went to the Guardian’s ‘Open Weekend’.
Aside from eating some wonderful food (the canteen has the best brownies in the world), entering a draw to win an iPad 3 and visiting a cheese-barge (yip, cheese on a boat) I went to four sessions.Two which were blog-worthy.

To laugh or not to laugh?
That is question that goes through your mind as you walk through Brain Activity, the exhibition by British artist, David Shrigley.
What is the appropriate reaction to seeing a taxidermy Jack Russell terrier holding a sign displaying the words ‘I’m Dead’?
