    Dyson Entry

    I did it! More than a week off the deadline too. I am now a Dyson entrant, my project should be up on the site by tomorrow (I’ll put a link here once it’s live) . Or see the part I’m most…

    #fypcountdown

    I’ve said it many (many, many) times before, but no more zero days. There are 100 days left to final exhibition, and I am going to document every one of them with an Instagram. Admittedly I make sweeping declarations like this…

    Future Kitchens

    …or lack thereof. The Electrolux focus I went with is Culinary Enjoyment, mainly because I have no interest in Air Purification and am very interested in Fabric Care, to the point that it’s what I want to look at for…

    The Utter Sameness

    I knew coming out here that NZ was the Ireland of the southern hemisphere,. “Era, sure it’s grand”=”No worries”, agriculture is still a big deal, and full of Irish people. But I wasn’t prepared for just how exactly the same…
