Anyone in or around Sydney has to get down to the Quay after dusk for a truly spectacular, eye-popping experience. The city foreshore has come alive with intense colour, movement and light as the Vivid Sydney 2012 festival kicks off. So much creative energy and talent is on show. One of our favourites is the sky high canvas of the MCA with projected moving imagery reminiscent of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis but in full-blown, vivid colour. Unbelievable and unmissable! Get down there and take the kids too. They’ll love it!

Design Clarity alumni Bent Patterson and Laura Kepreotis recently joined creative forces with two fellow designers to form Sydney-based collective “He Made She Made”.
Situated in Darlinghurst, their soon-to-be open gallery provides a platform to showcase fresh, creative and under-represented talent by, “Bringing to life objects that might be considered art, but often encompass the functionality and utility of a design piece.”
We wish them all the best in their new venture and look forward to checking out the latest in Sydney art/design talent.
He Made She Made will launch to the public on 31/01/2012.

Concentrating very hard on staying upright, it was only after a couple of turns around the rink that we remembered to look up and appreciate what an amazing space Somerset House had become for Christmas.
Both Fiona and Alex, seemed to have no fear where the ice was concerned (growing up in chilly foreign climes must do that to you) – happy to hold everyone else up, and spinning them round corners, Fiona kept trying to tempt everyone ‘Lets go into the middle of the ice.’ I’m not sure what would have happened in the middle of the ice, but no one was tempted, I suspect some kind of Torvill and Dean routine might have gone terrible wrong.
Only one incident, a collision between Sam and the ice – but the handsome medic said all was fine, so back onto the …
