Went to Mindful at the Old Vic tunnels tonight. It was really good. Anything they do down in those tunnels is amazing... I love how the place is so dark, water is dripping from the walls, and it smells of mould and stuffyness. I also love how the lighting of the artwork is done, it makes looking at art a completely different story.
Tonight America is "legally" killing yet another person. In an hours time they are executing Troy Davis for a murder he may, or may not, have committed. He has been on death row for 2 decades and during this time the evidence has turned out not to be evidence, and the witnesses has withdrawn their statements. Still, he is being killed today, ordered by the justice system.
To kill a person for killing a person is a strange thing.
A one off opportunity to catch a late viewing of the exhibition MINDFUL after hours where exhibiting artists will roam The Old Vic Tunnels to talk about their works. Grab a drink in the surreal surroundings of the Bathtub Bar (named so for a reason…) and witness Oliver Cronk's stunning immersive live art performance the 'Feline Inquisition' - a litter of cats venting their curiosity on unsuspecting gallery roamers.

There’s not much space left for people to dream, you know, which is why you have to cut your own world and do your own thing. You have to find a way to commercially survive. But whatever you have to do don’t compromise yourself and you’ll be able to have some kind of freedom somewhere. -Mode2
