Hello again,

I hope you are well,

I have one final spring exhibition to report back on... I have been hiding out in Glasgow since September last year studying the Masters Degree in Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art.

This Friday 15th May is the launch of Interim MFA - our end of year exhibition. I will be showing the brand new installation Toytown, and, in collaboration with Aye-Aye Books, the opening will also feature the Glasgow launch of my brand new publication Confessions of a Recovering Data Collector. Please come along if you are in town!

If you are the other side of the world, do not fret - I have been making short videos to document all my recent installations. The Toytown one is now online along with its sister installation Vending Machine (currently showing at Plymouth College of Art), which quite remarkably 20,000 people seem to have watched in the last two weeks!

Bye for now,

Ellie x
