Sci-Fi London

We had a fabulous time at Sci-Fi London. Got oodles of freebies and there was lots to see. The best thing we saw was "ONE" - a film based on the essay, One Human Minute by Stanislaw Lem. It takes his fictional review of a book, which purports to be a collection of statistics of what happens on Earth in the space of 60 seconds, and turns it into a mystery story. When the entire content of a world-renown rare books store disappears and is replaced by hundreds of copies of a single book called 1, those present in the shop are investigated by the Bureau of Paranormal Activity (RDI Reality Defence Institute)..... It was beautiful and had some fab archive footage thrown in!

I also got to meet Marcus Gilbert - my mum used to fancy him rotten after he starred in Jilly Cooper's 'Riders'. He was very charming and looked very tanned.

We also learn about how if you destroyed 50 of the most important satellites in space, the world would come to a complete and devestating stand still within 11 and a half hours. On a brighter note, we got to spend time with our dear friends Adele and Tom, eat lots of yummy sushi and feel ready to create some fab work for our upcoming exhibition for Dorset Art Weeks!

All in all, a lovely bank holiday jaunt!
