Shedboatshed (Mobile Architecture no. 2), 2005
At first sight, Simon Starling’s Shedboatshed (Mobile Architecture no. 2) appears to be a readymade. It’s an old shed. It looks a bit the worse for wear, but age will do that to a shed. Things aren’t quite a simple as they appear though and the first clue’s in the title.
Shedboatshed is a shed. Shedboatshed started out as a shed. But it hasn’t always been a shed. Starling turned an old shed, which he’d found in the banks of the Rhine, into a boat which he then used to get to Basel, carrying the unused parts of the shed in the boat. On arrival, the shed was reassembled and exhibited in the Kunstmuseum Basel and later that year in Tate Britain as part of the Turner Prize exhibition, which Starling won.
Alt-J - Warm Foothills
Such a nice song, reminds me of the hidden track Hand-Made from the previous album.
Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman created a giant, 82-foot-tall rabbit sculpture titled Moon Rabbit. The installation, which was created for the Taoyuan Land Art Festival, is currently laying on an old aircraft hangar in Taoyuan, Taiwan at the Dayuan Town Naval Base.

I spent the day in the studio and after finishing my evening chores
I sat with my husband to watch the day fall away into the night.
The peaceful quiet of the valley was there to enjoy.
It has been, “A Painting Day”.

Which way are you voting?
I’m a Yes voter.
Scotland’s Big Decision | Via
Tomorrow, legal residents of Scotland, ages 16 and older, will be voting in a referendum to decide their country’s independence from the United Kingdom. While ending a centuries-old union is a complex and emotional issue, the wording on the ballot could not be more simple — “Should Scotland be an independent country?” — with only two choices, yes or no. Interest in tomorrow’s vote is extremely high, and more than 97 percent of Scotland’s eligible voters are registered to vote. “No” voters had the edge in polls for most of the past year, but “Yes” voters surged ahead to take a brief lead just weeks ago. At the moment, polls favor a “No” vote, but the slim margin makes the outcome too close to call. As Scotland prepares to decide its future, here is a collection of images of the campaign, the voters, and the country.
