An excerpt from Dreams of Love, Etc. by Kawakami Meiko. I am very fond of this short story. Something about the surreal-ness of discovering your face looks like a word rather amuses me. In some ways, I wish I lived in a neighborhood where you could hear a neighbor playing music. I'm sure it would become annoying if it was too consistent, but the idea of being able to hear someone working hard on a project feels very wholesome.

An earring based on Le Grande Vitesse by Alexander Calder; Heavyweight card and silver. I played with some card I discovered in my scraps to create it. I created a pair of earrings inspired by Calder's monumental sculptures. It was very fun to make, though I am not sure how practical they will be as jewelry (especially in English weather).

Preparations for a photoshoot. Sadly, I haven't seen the images. Some items, which were props from my final collection from Central Saint Martins, I was happy to give a second life to. Maybe someday Max will show me the images...

I went for a stroll along the canal today. It was delightful to be outside in the sun. I tried taking photographs for a bit but my camera ran out of battery! This lonely floating glove was a detail in one of the pictures. I couldn't help using it, I loved the two colors together. I wonder what else one can find in the corners of the mundane images we tend to just take on our phones.

A color study for a vase. The papier mâché vase I made the other day is finally dry! I made a few small color studies to decide what colors would work together. I glimpsed at the dictionary of color combinations to see if anything inspired me.

I made a few collages today. I've been using the leftovers from when I used to create sketchbooks for CSM. I've held onto some pieces of paper as if they were precious. I've turned into such a paper hoarder. I need to find a way to use it all up. Maybe I'll try to make a few collages each week. Let's see how long it'll last.

Earrings before being baked. I was a bit eager to make something today and ended up creating loads of clay earrings! I took photos of them before I put them in to bake. The colors looked so funky on the reflective silver foil.

Mackerel dinner recipe from
The Family Meal home cooking with Ferran Adria
. Kathryn is coming over for dinner today. I've prepared one of the set menus from the El Bulli book. I haven't seen her in so long, I'm excited to have her try the cake I've made for her and talk about her recent work.

Architecture for Dogs at Japan House. Devised by Hara Kenya. I had so much fun at this exhibition; it was so silly. The people working that day seemed to be in a great mood. I had a few chats with the different people invigilating the different areas. One woman was so excited about people bringing their dogs to see the exhibition. There was a room where the dogs could play with some maquettes of the pieces being shown. I thought about submitting a design for a doghouse.
*This day does not follow the consecutive order, but the image suited this position and I prioritized that over the order.

It's my first day at my friend's farmhouse in Dorchester. It's wonderful to be camping after being stuck at home for so long. The weather is a bit colder than I have expected, but the sun makes everything look so summery and inviting. It’s a shame it’ll be such a brief trip.

Inauthentic Torta de Santiago with fresh cream and strawberries. I have been obsessed with patisserie since coming back from Spain. I'm not allowed to leave the house but have been craving all kinds of sweets I didn't have time to have while in Zaragoza. I made this traditional almond cake called Torta de Santiago, but I added baking powder to make if a fluffier texture. It was delicious with the strawberries Josh brought back.

An excerpt from William Carlos Williams. I have started to read the book of poems which Josh bought me while we were in New York in 2017. I’ve always enjoyed William Carlos Williams. His work is very playful but also melancholic. I love the way he creates these fanciful images with his poems. Some are very quiet while others are mischievous.
