When I was little, I had a book called Conundrum which I was utterly obsessed with. It was produced in conjunction with Cadburys, who had  commissioned 12 gold Faberge eggs worth over £10,000 each and buried them in secret locations around the UK. The book held the key to the locations in a series of beautiful, surreal illustrations and somewhat sinister and macabre riddles. I don’t know how many hours I spent poring over the book as a child hoping to glean some clue or insight that would allow me to discover where the treasure was hidden. I still have the book, still read it and wonder who found the eggs. Still love this kind of thing. Makes me glad that I was a kid in a time where this sort of thing still happened. #donshaw #nickprice #conundrum #cadburyscremeeggmystery #easter #easteregghunt #1980s #childhood #fantasy #magic #folktales #illustration #book

I am Lydia Darling - this is my performance, please don’t remove tags/credits. 

In this interactive live art installation, the performer is connected to a custom-built, flower-decked harp via a series of flesh hooks in her back. The harp is in turn connected to an audio interface with converts the vibration of the string into eerie and beautiful sound - harmonic, orchestral notes which produce haunting and etherial music. A decedent symphony of the flesh, a  meeting of delicate beauty and feminine strength.

With thanks to Sally Kamelyn, Toby Coe, Joanna Cabral, and Benedict Edwards.
