A project funded by Innovate UK - art directed by designer Becca Rose
My story I developed is about a little girl whose curious nose leads her to find a deep deep dark hole, and climb down the long long rickety ladder.. she gets a bit greedy along the way..
What’s down there? Surely nothing. Right?
That’s what she thinks…
The Bear Abouts project in Becca Rose's own words :
"Bear Abouts is a crossover in the fields of app creation, book publishing, and children’s education. Intended to recapture the magic of interacting with our hands that the proliferation of smartphones threatens to deaden, Bear Abouts is a digital/paper hybrid book that gives kids the power to create and influence stories.
The platform combines paper pages and digital animations to tell interactive stories across physical and digital spaces. It encourages invention, creative play, and imaginative storytelling with iPads or tablets."

Micro-Museum of Sleep - Bompas & Parr
The Micro Museum of Sleep is a collaboration between Bompas & Parr, super/collider and citizenM to design and curate a micro-museum which allows guests to explore the experience of sleep. Based on a Greek sleep sanctuary, the Micro Museum celebrates the science and significance of sleep through a variety of artistic mediums.
This diorama depicts the dreams experienced by Gilgamesh, the Mesopotamian ruler of the city of Uruk. His mother, Ninsun was the goddess of dreams, wisdom and cows - she is has the role of the Seer, Explainer of Dreams. Ninsun explains Gilgamesh’s odd visions. Gilgamesh has a couple of disturbing dreams about a meteorite and an axe. Both objects he names “as a wife” to him. Ninsun interprets this as Gilgamesh meeting somebody who will help him on his quest to the cedar woods to conquer the monster, Humbaba. This help will come in the form of Endiku, the wild man, who was raised by wolves, who is part divine. In Sumerian stories like this one, the bull was a lunar symbol.

British Red Cross
Red Cross Live Drawing
On Thursday 9 May, local illustrators held a live drawing event, exhibition and auction in Bristol. Artists produced pieces on the theme of 'red' to raise funds and awareness during Red Cross Week.
At the event, five of the artists -- Dave Bain, Liv Bargman, Katy Christianson, Paul Roberts and Loch Ness -- illustrated sections of a huge two-metre by three-metre canvas. Their challenge was to respond to the British Red Cross' campaign strapline -- 'refusing to ignore people in crisis.'
