The other day I was walking through the Cardiff arcades and I happened to find this little student art show in an empty shop. I’ve heard talk here and there about cultural or community projects putting empty retail spaces to good use, but this is the first one I’ve seen for myself.
I must compliment the university for arranging this show. I studied a humanities subject at uni, and at times felt a huge gulf between the arts, and the society they were supposed to reflect. So giving the students and the public a chance to interact in this way, seems just great to me.
P.S. Also, my friend Will Scothern will be showing his film Queensbury Rules at Chapter Movie Maker on Monday 7th Feb (fb). Its a ten minute short I wrote the score for (lots of piano music), shot on Cannon 5D, and is described as ‘a boxing movie without any boxing’. If you’re about, then I’ll see you there.
