I have just had a wonderful, quick and informative catch-up meeting with Paul Tempest the director at Ferrious; a high-end design interior shop in Manchester.
His advice is clear: get making, get messy and start creating!
"Have you played with projection and LEDs in different light formations? Have you looked into moiré patterns? Have you been to the Whitworth gallery to see Nico Vascellari’s work?"
So really what I’m thinking is a) to break each day down into research in the morning and playing in the afternoon and then blog, blog and blog at lunchtime.
Also, I set about researching the areas and visiting the shows he had suggested!
