The Uncanny Valley and other treats

We managed to get to Liverpool today and saw the new Tim Lewis works which were amazing and worth the trip alone. Some lovely and bizarre ideas ranging from chairs being pulled along by crutches, prosthetic arms signing Dali's autograph, mad spinning stroboscopic optical sculpture in darkened rooms like machines from a bizarre science fiction film. Very funny, very weird and beautifully made.
In the next room were a selection of watercolours and ink drawings by Britain's foremost eccentric illustrator, W. Heath Robinson. I will have to put him on a seperate page. I have a headache from the humid weather and looking too hard at things.
