3:AM Top 5: Stewart Home

Stewart Home, who read at the Trocchi night the other evening, has asked us to draw your attention to the following project of his:

LONDON ART TRIPPING: Stewart Home takes you on a journey from west to east London as a way of delineating the psychogeographical shifts of London’s cultural centres over fifty years. The landscape is splashed across a large canvas with looks at bohemia, Notting Hill, Soho, Hoxton, Hackney, Bethnal Green, pubs, clubs, drugs and places to visit. Words and still images at – www.stewarthomesociety.org/art/trip.htm – with links to filmed interviews with Jeremy Deller (Turner Prize winner), Francis Morland (sculptor), Mikey Cuddihy (painter), Barry Smith (musician) and Bill Hopkins (writer).
