His new house reminds me of something from my childhood, although I can’t quite place a finger on what. It doesn’t have central heating and the winters are going to be so cold, but I’m in love with the charm this little place has. I know it’s going to be one of those places that I’ll never forget when I’m looking back on my years in college. Casey’s little room in the attic is my favorite, you’re so close to the roof of the house that when it rains, it sounds like nothing I’ve ever heard. With the slanted roof Casey’s head touches the ceiling in his room when he’s not paying attention, but it’s at the perfect height for me.
Lex Pott - True Colours (2010)
"When an element like copper is found in nature it has a green colour. Iron has an orange/brown colour when being found inside the earth. Oxidized metal surfaces create colours that provide information about a material. The pallete is a reaction with the base material. Therefore the coloured surfaces have an organic growth of colour and not every colour is possible on every surface. Colouring metals requires accurate recipes. This project shows the results of a research on metals and their true colours; a direct relationship between colour, material and information.”
