Bombay Glasshouse Project 2019
3-day creativity and innovation workshop
8-10 July 2019
This three-day event for Bombay Sapphire’s Glasshouse Project was designed to #stircreativity among elite cocktail bar owners, mixologists and brand ambassadors. Artipoeus was on hand as Creativity Coach, taking the group on a discovery tour of the Lügenmuseum, followed by a brief presentation of artists’ ways to communicate, and finally applying learnings to a hands-on, U/X-focused workshop. The outcomes directly informed the innovations created by participants designed to make simple tasks behind the bar more efficient and environmentally-friendly. Bombay Sapphire will produce the winning design for roll-out in 2020.

Street Art, Architecture & Language in Paris
Guest Speaker for
University of Missouri’s Study Abroad Contemporary Art, Culture & Language in France program
University of Missouri @ St John’s University Paris
03 August 2015
This lecture explores street art as it relates to Paris. Beginning with the relationship between Bristol / Paris vs New York / Berlin, which translates into stencil vs freehand styles and their effect on movements in contemporary art (eg, neo-prrimitivsm, etc), it shows how Parisian street art has its roots in the May 1968 student uprising and the importance of language and the French love for playing with words to the street art of Paris; how street art styles have changed from the 1980s to 1990s to early 2000s to now, styles going more or less socio-political depending on the contemporary culture and politics in France; how it has affected the art market and how some artists are now using their leverage in the art market to effect social change — bringing the spirit of street art back to its origins.
