Domestic appliances are an uncertain science! But even non-specialists are able to draw major trends in the use of these: a huge proportion of these machines tend to break down EXACTLY a month after the warranty expires and the after sale customer service (ASCS) are in most of the cases inefficient if not disgraceful. Unfortunately, I noticed this trends tend to be a bit worse in the UK.
After an evening at the pub, Gaston and I met in the kitchen, the most important room of a flat, for a very serious conversation.
I was quite excited, not because of alcohol, to tell him about how I felt towards the autumn and I started to try and convince him with a lot of selling points regarding this amazing season. But Gaston remained stoical, quite as himself actually, he was looking at me, his eyes dull with lack of interest and disbelief in my argumentation. He shrugged and concluded that he couldn’t see any interest in the end of the summer and being back to work after 2 weeks in the Pyrénées and pointed his finger at the window. He made a good point: it was raining cats and dogs.
Even though the picture is not memorable, it shows one of the most famous places in the City from above, and without any other building to hide it.

You probably noticed this blog is mainly written in French. But, it is about to change as I would like to introduce you to very special artists who may not understand French: Ursula Hitz and Heloise Acher (founders of B-sight). They live in London and create trendy and unusual artwork with fonts, words, photos and their creativity have no limits but their imagination.
So when they invited me to come to their exhibition showdown on the 31st of May I jumped on the opportunity to have a look around and discover more of their posters.
