I visited Seattle over the weekend. I thought rather than fly under the radar, which was probably the sensible thing to do, that i'd wander up to the radar, straighten my hair and smile directly into it.
After spending a lovely time visiting I began the drive back to Vankie with a slight feeling of trepidation. What if?
I made it to the Peace Arch, and spoke to a nice lady who didn't seem to give a stuff what I was doing coming into Canada, only that I wasn't carrying any guns, and that the rental car was in my name. So, after a good hour or so of toying with my story options, I didn't even need to tell a story, and now i'm back.
I'm an Australian designer who specialises in digital and cultural work. Most of my career thus far has been on the web, but I'm excited that it's starting to creep out into the real world.
I am the founder of Museum in a Box, making interactive museum objects with simple, fun tech, for wide-as-possible distribution, and I own a company called Good, Form & Spectacle, making design in service to cultural heritage for clients like The British Museum, MoMA, and the Wellcome Trust.
