And surely using students from the London College of Communications would have been more local than ones from Camberwell.

The fact that there even was an Artist in Residence of The Elephant must be a sign of the times, no? Pretty funny!

LCC isn't an art college.

"London College of Communication is a world leader in media and design courses that prepare students for successful careers in the creative industries."

It's part of UAL, University of The Arts London.

Beetroot is making a distinction of practice; namely those defined by the term plastic arts, which traditionally would have included sculpture. ceramics and to a growing extent, painting. As a definition of arts practice It has fallen into disuse with the rapid expansion of ideas and materials, but bearing in mind that some would still only grudgingly accept photography as an arts medium, it certainly would not be extended to the like of 'media and design.'

So they did at least go to the right building and one could no doubt argue that the bursary money given to young artists at the start of their career might have been a bold move in the long term, however that might be giving the peeps at Strata too much credit.

With a bit of proofreading that might have read better, but hey... Don't you hate having your mistakes for all the world to see? I seem to have this strange text blindness for words on screen.

This caught my eye in a written answer at the last Southwark Council assembly re affordable business units

The unit secured through S106 at the Strata tower in Elephant and Castle is about to be let to a local Latin American business that has been operating out of E&C shopping centre since 1997.

I was watching the wind turbines moving very gently around their housings last night. How are the turbines going these days? I have always been curious about when any such data could be released on the effectiveness of the turbines in producing in-house leccy. Is there a due date for any such data or pronouncement. Am assuming they are still in the experimental phase.

The experimental stage hasn't started - there's going to be a 2-year assessment by Southbank Uni.

I've noticed too in the last week or so that the turbines have been spinning - albeit always at super slow speed. Maybe speed has been reduced to dampen vibrations and noise to flats immediately underneath?

Or maybe the wind's not at the right angle? ;)
