Friday you old chestnut, how the devil have you been? We’d have laid on a spread if we knew you were coming. Anyway since you’re here, come tarry a while and warm your feet by the fire and we will treat your ears to the new episode of Studio Audience – 23 minutes of art and design chatter sure to warm your cockles right through. SPLENDID!
In the first section this week we talked about Facebook’s pay-per-message trail scheme, BBC6 Music’s aural treat bringing together Jarvis Cocker and Sir David Attenborough, and we looked at rumours swirling round the launch of the new Daft Punk album in a tiny Australian town. We also talked about the ace new Patternity show and the ways in which they are helping us rethink the part patterns play in all our lives, and we ended on the news Ryan McGinley’s Blue Falling will take pride of place on The Highline’s art billboard in NYC.
