the v&a’s exhibition is a must see for london livers and trip goers. from traditional methods and techniques of making that are passed down such as making a dry stone wall, to colouring eggs with a robot made for this purpose. Above are a few of my favourites from the exhibition. from the top.. a gorilla made from wire coat hangers, sculpted pencils (http://www.daltonmghetti.com/index.asp), a dress made from pins, heart shirt (www.bronwenmarshall.com), dress made from tape, and finally the egg decorater bot (www.evilmadscientist.com). Another fav were a pair of traditional polish lace underwear made in the town of koniakow (www.koniakow.com).
this freebie exhibition is on until 2 January 2012. for details check out their website: www.vam.ac.uk/content/exhibitions/power-of-making
