I visited Puppetry and Writers Evening at Little Angel Theatre.

The event started with the talk by Toby Olie and Finn Caldwell. They explained their creative process for the show The Elephantom.

Then we had an opportunity to explore different types of puppetry.

Throwing lots of old stuff away after moving. Selecting and keeping things I really need. It could be an slightly emotional process.
It’s time to say good bye to the paints I made when I was working towards the entrance exam for Art universities in Japan.

Bye bye more than 100 of my favourite colours.

My favourite colours

I visited The Autism Show at ExCel this weekend.

There were many stalls showing their products help and support children and adult with special needs.
I thought this coloured gel mat was quite interesting.

There were also many talks as well.
Damian Milton, independent autism consultant, talked about the ways and theories of intervention for children with autism. He mentioned that it could become dangerous if the person, who is intervening a child, worships one particular therapy and start blaming on their parents for not making a real progress.

In the end, the most important thing is to know the child and how well you could tailor the intervention to suit their need.

ANIMATSUDA made an illustrated card for a big birthday boy!
Celebrating it with 30 different characters.
Happy happy birthday!

Day 5: Freud Museum and BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

Freud Museum is the last home of the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. Freud’s desk was covered with antique statues and artifacts and they were all his friends.
Then, visited to BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Neasden. This is the biggest Hindu temple in UK. Both exterior and interior have beautiful carving on the stone. Amazing architecture.

Day 4: I explored East London area.

Visited Swash London for a studio tour.
There were lots of cute illustrations and printed products!
Photos here!

Day 3 of my expedition led to

Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum
DSC_0089It was a such a little museum which was hard to find in the hospital.
But the lady there explained the history of discovering penicillin.
Very interesting!

The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret
DSC_0094Having been to Hunterian Museum yesterday, I noticed there has been some overlapping information when I visited The Old Operating Theatre.
Amputation before the invention of anesthesia and antiseptic was barbaric. Speedy operation was required to prevent the blood-loss and shock. Apparently, some Victorian doctors could amputate a leg within 1 min. Some in 30 seconds!

Today I went to

Hunterian Museum
Sir John Soane’s Museum
I spent more than 4 hours in Hunterian Museum, but I could spend more time.
So many specimens to see and so many new medical words to look up.
The surgical videos there was so informative and very interesting.

Shame I couldn’t take any photos inside…
