CLINQKO ALPHABET

TICKET STUBS BY MAT BRINKMAN

A collection of ticket stubs by Mat Brinkman.

Have a wander around while you're there...there's some other cool object collections, including some really nice crotchet'd poodles by Faith Gay. Dunno what it is w/ me and coloured woollen stuff right now; it seems to be inducing some sort of psychedelic hobby flashback...

Also really lovin' Lauren Levy's weird bead n button creations...the greys, off-whites and buff browns kinda remind me of those creepy little junk-objects made from shells that you find in old-fashioned Seaside Gift-Shops in the West Country. There's some more of her stuff here..."Choked by Stories" is particularly good, I thought...some of it has, I dunno, a Pseudo-African fetish-object sensibility that's been filtered thru the US equivalent of Village Craft Fair Culture...ie incomprehensible 70's 'found' objects (so-called 'door stops', 'letter holders', 'magazine racks', etc) sourced from W.I. shops, School & Church Fetes, etc. And I mean that in a good way.

VIKRAM'S OCCASIONS PALACE

You'll need your sound switched on for this one:

Vikram's Occasions Palace.

It's in Slough, innit.
