‘Resist the attempt to construct an argument’, flashes William Kentridge. / Pressurise air and make a continuous space, experience and breathe it all in with spectacular brevity. / A ceramic landscape for skinny dipping in winter. / Time is a spatial organisation. / Varnished fake nails are pretty water-proof. / Grow and carefully tend to the tallest topiary in the world. / A model so big it becomes its own inhabitable subject. / Forget about junkspace, we should really think about projects that can only be completed after we are dead. / The roof is a great big fascinator for an amorous building. Just don’t mention the rain. / To understand culture, one must eat it. In one beautiful gulp. / Work on these, don’t google it.
