I played a lot of football when I was young, I had trials for Sunderland school boys. I failed but I’m sure having this rude ball would have helped my chances. Alas, I’ve only just come up with it now, twenty years too late, so another dream has passed me by.

Show me your shoes!

In 2000 I saw a documentary about the Royal College of Art on BBC2 that  focused on a course called Design Products. There was an artist on the course and the projects seemed to be very conceptual, ideas based, so I decided to apply.

When I walked into the interview room there were about six people standing around a table looking at my sketchbooks. A man said ‘show me your shoes, show me your shoes!’ This confused me at first but later I learned that he was refering to a drawing in my sketchbook (shown above). This man turned out to be Ron Arad, a famous designer and architect. Luckily I was accepted on the course based on this and my other sketched ideas.

People of the dark, watch my talk.

I give talks about my work every now and again. The audiences are usually in darkness and I wonder what they are doing as I chatter away.

The wind in my sails, guaranteed
