A blog about writing, reading, travelling and great characters I meet in life. I love these things more than cheese-on-toast times trampolines times monkeys.

Spot the colourful difference

I came across my double in Yayoi Kusama's Obliteration Room at the Tate Modern.

This is me...


And this is her...


This interactive installation at Tate Modern is one for kids and big kids alike.

You are handed a sheet of polka dot stickers at the entrance.

And you are told to STICK THEM ON EVERYTHING.

Tables, chairs. Cups, sofas. Walls, ceilings. People, cushions. EVERYTHING.

My friend Phil and I had a sticker race to see who could stick their stickers quickest on stuff.




We also stopped by the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern to watch Tacita Dean's 11 minute silent film called 'FILM' - the bright colours and dots were there too.





Over dinner at the top of Tate Modern, St Paul's turned bright blue - it felt like the whole world was turning up the colour.



Then there were colours and dots everywhere...

...it was a week of brilliant sunsets in Peckham and Blackheath...




...there were Smarties in a glass in Covent Garden...


...there were thousands of lightbulbs at a party in Shoreditch, lit up in clusters of red and yellow...


...there was a wall of colourful guitars in a shop on Charing Cross Road...


...and Marilyn Monroe turned up in lime green trousers.


She said life was good.
