My shop christmas tree received it’s final decorations this morning!
It now has 13 little yellow and black knitted trefoils to go with all the other mathy designs and shapes…
There are 13 because that’s next in the Fibonacchi sequence of numbers of types of knitted mathematical decorations – and the colours are split 5 and 8!
Full explanation on the artist’s blog here.
And we’ll be open tomorrow (Christmas Eve) from 11.00 until late aftertnoon sometime. Then I’m off home! Merry Christmas!
Open again at 11.00 on Friday.
If you missed this exhibition about Scotland’s forgotten space project by Madeleine Shepherd when I had it on display back in 2009, you can catch it displayed around the walls at Hula Juice Bar at the foot of Victoria Street for the next few weeks!
A companion exhibition book is still available, with a forward by Ken MacLeod. Copies cost £6.99 over the counter , or £7.99 inc. postage & packing within the UK (overseas price on request). You can purchase it either from Transreal, from Hula or from the artist direct.
Google Street View have finally driven down (or maybe up) the top half of Candlemaker Row and I can finally post a Streetview of the shop and update my ‘Location’ page.
Hope you all had a good Christmas, enjoy the New Year when it comes, and I’ll see you again in 2013!
