Furillen update and important news

There was a Radiohead event at the sim this weekend – nothing too fancy, but highlights included

  • a playlist featuring all of the studio albums in chronological order
  • a slideshow of 400 pictures
  • our very own moon shaped pool
  • a giant radio
  • a landscape texture based on the album cover of A Moon Shaped Pool
  • a few fake plastic trees, and
  • the obligatory fake Chinese rubber plant.

Here are one or two pictures taken at the sim during the weekend …

Then, on Sunday, there was the opening party for the exhibition of pictures taken at Furillen, as curated by Mareea Farrasco. We all owe her a huge debt of gratitude for pulling this together so well, and providing a space that was large enough and bright enough to do justice to the collection.

If you haven’t visited yet, it’s at Mareea’s wonderful IMAGO gallery.

It was good to see so many people at the party, and to catch up with some old faces from previous Furillen events. The music harked back to several of those, with tracks from Bowie, Prince and Radiohead jostling with the odd blast of Abba and even a bit of funk.

So … what next, at Furillen? Well, there is something that I’ve been thinking about for quite some time …

This will, I hope, be one to remember. Mareea will be helping with this event, and I know one or two others who also want to chip in. I’ll ‘dress’ the sim accordingly, there will be wall-to-wall music – pun intended – and a photo contest based on a song that will be announced in due course. Along with this, there will be a slide show, and some ‘Pink Floydian’ stuff laid out around the place. There will also, of course, be a party held at some point over the weekend. Maybe even several …

If you have any ideas or want to make a contribution, please get in touch.
