Knight Feast at Shuffle Festival

As dusk falls, the globe creates a focal point, bathing the leaves, gravestones and festival-goers in an ethereal glow, visible from deep in the woods. This was Knight Feast – an installation by Rebecca Sainsot-Reynolds and Katherine Daish, and part of Shuffle Festival, […]

Posted by Emma on August 5, 2016 in Personal work, Uncategorized | 12 Comments

If Burning Man is a dusty city with 80,000 inhabitants, then Nowhere is a dusty village with just 2,000. I like it that way.

Portrait of the week – Daymé Arocena

Posted by Emma on April 24, 2016 in Music, Uncategorized | No Comments

A brilliantly talented singer and composer, and an infectiously cheery personality – it was a joy to meet Daymé before her (also brilliant) gig at Richmix this week. I haven’t been posting many portraits of the week lately, but just had to share this one. It really does capture her spirit. Honestly, she repeatedly broke into song mid-sentence. It […]
