I’ve had quite a lot of tweets/emails/facebook comments over the past few days in response to the seemingly plagiarised installation at Latitude this weekend which is identical to my work at Kensington Palace last July.
… However, it appears that Kensington Palace themselves have simply replicated the idea at Latitude – with another theme and presumably another artist. They are quite entitled to do this. Ownership of artwork and an idea when it’s created by a commissioning body and an artist together can be vague. I worked on the project together with the Outreach & Community Involvement Officer at Historic Royal Palaces.
It does present interesting questions though for artists when you work on interactive installations and don’t own the concept or the final artwork. Anyway I like Latitude and I’m pleased that all those juicy red baubles aren’t just going dusty in a palace attic.
Print on Prescription wins award!
July 8, 2012
I don’t often blog about Double Elephant Print Workshop projects (as they’re so well covered by my fab colleagues Claire and Cath on twitter and facebook) but last week we were particularly delighted to win the Arts & Health South West award for the inspirational work that Print on Prescription has achieved in the last two years.
This is the team at Mshed in Bristol where all the nominees presented their projects and we had a lunch and awards ceremony and all the lovely things that don’t happen much in our field of work. It was the first time in months that we’ve even all been together… printmaking and outreach work especially in rural Devon can be quite isolating. Anyway to find out more about Print on Prescription then follow Double Elephant on facebook/twitter or check out our website www.doubeelephant.org.uk

Kirstie’s Homemade Home
October 27, 2010
The book accompanying the Channel Four series Kirstie’s Homemade Home is now out – with a chapter on how to print your own wallpaper. This features Kirstie screenprinting the Beastly Chronicles design for her North Devon house with me last April.
Printing your own wallpaper is always going to be tricky and two pages is never enough to try and explain how to go about it. Do get in touch if you do print something for your house – I’d love to see! Or if you have any problems, I’m happy to try to answer any questions.
Wallpaper featured in Country and Town House magazine
Beastly Chronicles wallpaper is now stocked at London lifestyle store Beyond the Valley … and creative community and online network Jotta has teamed up to sell the wallpaper and a range of prints on JottaShop
