Undisclosed Pigeon Incident!

Following the much welcomed mini heatwave Salvador opened one of the Studio Velux windows this morning, only to be set upon by a kamikaze Pigeon!
It was noted that this was the first time a bird had made advances towards him since his birthday bash!

Love New Media visit the capital of culture!

Always keen to keep the team in touch with creative genius... and finding inspiration... Penny took a trip to Liverpool during it's year as European Capital of Culture to see an exciting new exhibition at the Tate.
Liverpool and the Tates current exhibition Gustav Klimt: Painting, Design and Modern Life in Vienna 1900. The most impressive piece on show is the full size reconstruction of the Beethoven Frieze, which seemed quite at home taking up the whole of the ground floor, and was impressive up close.
Klimt was one of the founding members of the Secessions, a group of artists who collaborated and exhibited in Vienna. The members of the Secession produced art decoration and typography to create a brand identity. Klimts visual designs for the Secessions first exhibition were particularly appealing.

The rest of the exhibition, on the fourth floor was a collection of Klimts artwork displayed alongside furniture, photographs, sketches, posters and jewellry from a group of artists and artisans with whom he collaborated. The exhibition displayed Klimts work in context with the objects they would have originally accompanied in the luxurious homes of wealthy who commissioned them.
Check it out next time you're in the pool, it's on until 31 August 2008. The multimedia tour is definitly recommended.

Love New Media contribute to the New World Record Lego Tower!

Love New Media and our enthusiastic offspring were proud to be part of the new world record set at Lego Land Windsor!
Yes it has been a while but offcially we are part record holders with crowds of other lego building enthusiasts!
Here is the official lowdown...
The Lego brick tower stands nearly 100ft tall and is shaped to resemble a Viking longboat mast. Positioned at the park's main entrance, it is made up of almost half a million Lego bricks and celebrates 50 years of the popular children's toy.
Love New Media kids helped build 20cm sections, with each section hoisted into place by crane.
The record for the tallest Lego tower was just over 96ft which was set in Toronto in August 2007. See the video - click here!
