Dec 2011

Mike Kelley and Michael Smith

Another exhibition that I visited in my few hours at the Baltic. Recorded some great samples in the exhibition and in the stairway.

Turner Prize 2011

At the Baltic in Newcastle. My first visit to this space. Great atmosphere and a nice lunch on the top floor (though it was a bit salty)

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Late to the party with this movie too, and still haven’t read the book(s). Loved it. A strong contrast to the David Fincher version which I didn’t especially enjoy (I saw it very shortly afterwards). In Fincher’s version I felt that the role of Lisbeth was reduced in power and intelligence. Why?
