Manau Coll | Lost Spaces


I was asked to respond to some of the history of Tedder House in Llandudno for Ideas People Places, working alongside Marc Rees, Lisa Carter and Helfa Gelf. Now standing empty stripped back to the bare bricks, all the that remains of the old R.A.F.A Club are stories and a few artefacts amongst the surviving members. After meeting with several people who were involved with the old club I was able to piece together a few memories and bring some of this once great town instution back to life. The work was projected onto a trophy cabinet from the old club on the opening night, and club members were invited to see it, there will be another opportunity to see the film in September during Helfa Gelf.

This gallery in milazzo castle will take some beating.

I went to the library its was very different to england it was almost like a museum I didn’t see the new Mills and Boon by the front door. Beautiful marble staircase

I walked to the store yesterday done the back lane totally out in the fields and every so often there would be a strong smell of cannabis like its growing wild. There missing a trick if it is 🙂

Got a good solid collection of pil boxes i think ive got 12 or 13 images to project in the vault of the castle.

We are told we will get a tour of parts of the castle not open to the public. Watch out tony Robinson and time team

Hello

I can highly recommend the tagliatelle alla  Bolognese if your passing this way. They pick de herb fresh off the tree. Claudio taught us how to say good food in masculine and feminine after 3 men helped us select desert. I like the fact they would not let you mix flavours.

I had a really special day yesterday. Firstly seeing the italian coast, the toe tip if you imagine the boot really left an impression on me. It’s not very often you would get to see such an iconic land feature. That is unless down the road you see a volcano!

Mount etna

Spent the afternoon in Catania only had a short spell in the fantastic little city. All the streets are flagged with lava rock and its many Baroque buildings. It was so hot in the street felt like the heat was coming upwards.

Had a little walk this morning around the olive plantations were people work the land due to the heat

And saw this cool little truck i think they must have scooter engines in them.

Some more pil boxes to get today

Ciao!
