Local Artist on Apprentice

Not that I have watched it, but the new series of The Apprentice featured a local chap, Nicholas De Lacy Brown. He is from Worthing and it turns out he is a bit of an artist. I say featured as he was the first to be kicked off.

Brighton Fringe Festival

The Brighton Fringe Festival is now open for business. It seems to have grown since last year as it now features a Spiegeltent, an Udderbelly as well as the usual selection of lady boys. Musical hilights include Hercules and Love Affair and Seth Lakeman. Le Scandal sounds fun as well.

Mike Read @ Julie-Ann Gilburt Gallery

Yes, the Mike Read has an exhibition in Brighton. Not only that, but it consists of works made entirely of sweets. Now, that may sound a bit naff and in all honesty it is. I will say though that the Tube (of smarties) undeground map is a nice idea.

The show is on at the juile-anne gilburt gallery which is one of those funny little ones along Maderia Drive. Looking at her website she seems quite happy to work with celebs of the major and minor type. I believe it starts this weekend (22nd March) for an unspecified amount of time. Probably untill they have all been eaten. :)

Feed Lack Loop@Lighthouse

This thursday there will be a virual art show in Brighton and a real life in the MMORPG Second Life, or is it the other way around? Either way, it sounds interesting.

Feed Lack loop "inquires whether the concept of interactivity, so lauded in contemporary culture, is about Empowerment or possibly leads to its opposite: Control."

I think we will see a lot more of this sort of stuff in the future, especially in Brighton. The virtual worlds are getting more and more realistic each year and it is only a mater of time before peole start saging plays and films in there.
