  5. Dock, Tate Britain

    Media

    Filling the Duveen Gallery at the Tate Britain (the big one in the middle) right now is Phyllida Barlow's sculptural work. Phyllida has created a series of massive sculptures reminiscent of the chaos and the grandeur of the old docks of the Thames, which juxtapose with the sculptural and Imperial architecture of the Tate Britain. I especially enjoyed the sense of tension created by suspending giant objects from seemingly haphazard timber structures.

  7. E.T. cartridges finally dug up

    Media

    A great conclusion to one of gaming’s greatest myths. ‘The 1983 movie tie-in is considered among the worst games of all time but Atari made so many copies (more copies than there were active consoles) they had to bury millions of cartridges in the desert.’
