Amy n Jess going into the depths of the Metro Underground!
There was quite a lot of work containing shadows in The Pompidou. This piece by Cristina Iglesias has inspired me to maybe experiment with shadows in some future pieces as I think it could work quite well with the concepts and ideas I have.
A lot of the work I have been producing has been based upon the automatic writing I have produced, layering these texts on top of each other and therefore making it unreadable so I was excited to find a section based on “Unreadable writing” in the Pompidou! Artists in this section included Irma Blank and Pierrette Bloch who I plan to do some further research into.
Barbed Salt Lamps (2007) by Sigalit Landau. These were really interesting and accompanied by quite a strange / disturbing video where she hula hooped barbed wire around her waist. Landau is interested in circles / circular motion so would be an interesting artist to do some further research into!
View towards Sacre-Coeur from Pompidou
Unfortunately I didn’t get the name of this artist but I would’ve really liked to look at some more of their work! I’d quite like to produce a doodle on the same scale as this however not sure if I have the patience to!
Some more interesting Parisian graffiti!

A well earned chocolat chaud after climbing 2 levels of the Eiffel Tower! Unfortunately the top was closed for some reason!
