Quote of the day

"Temporarily sited and enacted in various venues throughout the Museum, the Disruptions are intended as a riposte to the lunchtime recital, a succession of short, experimental shocks within the structure of the institution."

"Short, experimental shocks" sounds about right, given that said Disruptions have been composed by Napalm Death in collaboration with the V&A's Ceramics Resident and will be projected via "clay sound systems".

On the subject of art, credit to Peter Fecteau for finding a novel use for a lot of Rubik's Cubes (4242 of them, to be precise): creating a mosaic of Martin Luther King's face entitled Dream Big. Slightly less impressive was the mosaic of Paul O'Grady's face recreated in jelly beans I recently saw in the window of a Liverpool sweet shop - but still, you have to applaud the effort.

(Thanks to Dave for the V&A link.)
