Creating a time capsule for MemoryScapes

Here I am building a micro controller circuit (under the supervision of KWMC's tech manager Barry) for our MemoryScapes clock, or Time Capsule. When you open the face, music/memories/messages of your choice can play, and you can store memorabilia inside. Developed through workshops with older people, MemoryScapes is aimed to support people with dementia to reconnect with the past in full sensory way.

Royatt Nature reserve, moon temple

I came across this graffitied old railway building along the Royatt railway bridge walk way. There's a notice saying that it is now used as a moon temple and every full moon people meet there with instruments, and to feel free to plant lovely plants inside it as decoration!

Democratree

Young people from Bristol developed the tree planting app, Democratree, during Young Rewired State festival at KWMC. We have been developing it further with them and are now piloting the app, available for android phones and on the website www.democratree.org.uk. If you are interested in having your say on where trees should be planted in Bristol, be sure to plot a tree on the Democratree map, give it a name and write the story of why you want it. Be sure to vote on other people's trees, as the trees with the most votes get sent to Bristol's One Tree Per Child project who will look into planting them with Bristol City Council.

Bristol artists completing the decor for Nozstock Festival in Herefordshire

A group of Bristol and Newcastle based artists designed the decor for this year's Nozstock Festival near Bromyard in Herefordshire. The sci-fi themed murals that were 6x15 feet each featured planets, a moonscape, floating cities, a rocket crashing on a u-v mushroom field, an alien lady flying through space on a turtle's back with a tree growing out of the shell and more, inspired by Terry Pratchett's novels. Also, a 6 foot tall 3D man-on-the-moon sculpture fixed to the apex of the Garden Stage featured a moon face with a NOZ15 rocket crashing in his eye, reminiscent of the 1902 silent film by Georges Melies 'Le Voyage Dans la Lun' (copied by the Mighty Boosh and Smashing Pumpkins 'Tonight, Tonight' video). A full week was spent on the festival site before it began, with over 200 crew building and decorating the stages, bars, chillout areas and backstage areas.
