Hi All,

Has anybody been to the art thing that is temporarily on Webber Street? Sorry for the lack of detail but I assumed it would be permenent but on the way to work this morning, I noticed a sign saying it was only open until 9PM tonight. I'll be popping in after work as it looked really good.

It's just near the Great Suffolk Street end of Webber St. I went last night and I think it's defintely worth a look - especially as it's run has been extended for anthother couple of days. The artists are really friendly, one started chatting to me about how I would get a better shot of one of the pieces (I had a camera) if I put sunglasses over the lense? Bizarre but it worked.

It's pretty eclectic, some pieces which made me think (really recent letter from a British solider fighting in Afganistan). Also some pieces, which I didn't get at all...

There is also something by Tracy Emin and one by Damian Hurst as well, although they are not as impressive as some of the others (in my humble, ill-informed opinion).

I must say I do love living literally 30 seconds walk away from stuff like this... check it out if you can. If you hate it, it's free and they have a bar.

Apparently it has been extended for another few days until Friday evening!
Great opportunity to see some formidable work, love it or hate it!
