We saw Adrian Piper - The Probable Trust Registry: The Rules of the Game #1-3 at Hamburgerbahnhof in Berlin. The work consists of three identical, golden reception desks that are placed before gray, ceiling-high walls in the historic hall of the museum. With the assistance of receptionists, visitors can sign a contract with themselves at these desks. In the contracts, each individual voluntarily commits to align his or her future deeds with ethical principles such as honesty and reliability.
We are loving the warm weather in Shoreditch this week. It has made for a great excuse to spend our lunch times collecting as many Pokemon as possible.
We caught a Gastly in Old Street station, a Golden in The Bricklayers Arms and we posed for photos with a Spearow outside Boxpark.
Happy hunting everyone!
Liberation gives London a leg-up!
Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London released the #LondonIsOpen video today to show the world that London “remains entrepreneurial, international, and full of creativity and possibility, while reassuring the more than one million foreign nationals who live in London that they will always be welcome, and that any form of discrimination will not be tolerated.” We’re proud to be a part of this campaign – and in the video – you can see our brief cameo around the four second mark. https://youtu.be/ErLq9nir41E
New York, New York
The New York skyline has been changing quickly over the past few years. We love 432 Park Avenue designed by Rafael Viñoly which seems to have popped up from nowhere since we were last here.
We look forward to visiting this fast paced city again in the near future to see how the addition of even more super-skinny skyscrapers change the views.
The Photography Show 2016

East Side Gallery, Berlin
A trip to Berlin definitely involves a visit to East Side Gallery, an international memorial for freedom. This 1.3km of graffiti painting on the Berlin wall is the largest and longest-lasting open air gallery in the world. This segment is "My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love" by Dimitri Vrubel.
We had a great time at our cocktail making course last week in Shoreditch. Some of us took to it better than others…. Espresso Martini anyone?

Jardin Majorelle, Marrakech
Found a calming retreat within the bustling city of Marrakech, Jardin Majorelle - a dreamy oasis full of exotic plants from five continents. In amongst the garden, I came across this astonishingly vibrant Moorish buliding with a hint of Art Deco, glowing with an intense blue. Beautiful.
