Mad Lab's latest expo

Manchester Digital Laboratory

Lucky me, I had a meeting this morning at Mad Lab with Hwa Young, to catch up and tell her more about Peripheral Vision. I just love it there – they do such interesting, and often wacky, things such as: Spectacular Shots Club; Fashion Hackers; Robot Hacking; Music Hacking and DIY Bio.

While I was there, I had a look at the latest exhibition on display: Twice Removed. I couldn’t quite believe my eyes when I saw that they had printed some gorgeous posters of the photographs in the expo that could be folded and cut and made into a little book. This is exactly the kind of book-making that I would like the Peripheral Vision participants to make and use. Serendipitous indeed.

Lauren Powter

I also met a lovely young woman called Lauren Powter, who had just moved to Manchester and was looking for work and opportunities to meet new people. She is a recently graduated graphic designer and you can view her website here.

Common Bar

Once the meeting was finished I met Mr W for some nice nosh at Common Bar over the road. What a lovely morning!
