Hello hello, can you read me? This message was sent to you from the unique landmark Lizard Point in Cornwall, mainland Britain’s most southerly location. Imagine visiting the lighthouse where Tolkien took inspiration for his haunting image of ‘The Eye of Sauron.’ Or how about the tiny wooden hut that was the birthplace for much of our modern communication? You can read all about this in today’s special Cornish blog post!
Hip hip hooray, it’s my 40th birthday today! And it’s the perfect festive ending to a great week spent in Cologne and Berlin. It’s been a week of history, art and the latest electronic music gadgets.

Happy Sunday everybody! In case you wondered why it’s been so quiet on my blog for the last weeks, it’s because I was travelling around New Zealand. My body clock is still messed up and my head can’t seem to focus yet, so for now I’ll share some photos from my Instagram feed here with you. Enjoy!
I’m an avid list-making person, from my daily to-do lists to my weekly meal plan to lists with all the films I’ve watched over a year to exhibitions or concerts I’ve been to or the books I’ve read.

For six decades he created wild and pioneering art up to his death in 2008. His Foundation has opened up his home and studio for artists from all over the world and from different backgrounds and I still can’t believe I am one of them.
