In January I did a lecture at VAS – University of Brighton Visiting Artists Society. Craig Barrow rang me up and asked me if I would like to come to Brighton and talk about my work. I went to South of England and did a presentation about the people I met in the last three years and that influenced me in the choices I made. At the end I spend three days in Brighton. I saw the city, met the people and more important, had a close look at the facilities of the University of Brighton. Many thanks to Craig who gave me a hand with the captions for this post!
