Student Artist Spotlight: Nessie Wise

“I started embroidering about five years ago following the discovery of a hoop and a bag of tangled threads in my house. Since then it’s become my favourite medium to work with as it is an incredibly freeing, expressive and forgiving medium to work with – there’s no such thing as an out of placeContinue reading “Student Artist Spotlight: Nessie Wise”

G-YOU’s Indie Festive Take Over

Winter is descending on Glasgow; with shorter days, colder nights and the inevitable same festive songs playing over and over again in shops.

Street Watch: The Pink Bear Rebel Strikes Again

It Only Takes One Shot

In the past year, social media – in particular Instagram – has seen a rise in photos with a dubious warm saturation and some random date from the 90s printed in orange in the corner. They shamelessly mimic the quality of a photograph produced by an analogue camera using an app called HUJI, which hasContinue reading “It Only Takes One Shot”

Instant infrastructure: built to last?

After the Glasgow School of Art recently suffered its second blaze in four years, the permanence of architecture has been playing on my mind. For a building to stand for over a century and then be destroyed by fire twice in such a short period is an eerie coincidence. But in the grand scheme ofContinue reading “Instant infrastructure: built to last?”
