ATE – IX

For my ninth installment of All Things English…

It is all about the Royal College of Art Show.  On display is silversmith designer Kathryn Hinton‘s great bowl & fork set.   The prongs of the forks correspond with the words imprinted in the bowl as though stamped during a feeding frenzy.  Brill!

And Freddie Yauner‘s exit sign that comes to life when you aren’t looking.  Reminds me of the secret little creatures in Kage no Sekai that I love so much.

Where the Wild Things Are

Remember that creepy Stephen King movie called Cat’s Eye?  The movie about a tiny, evil troll who lives behind the skirting board of little Drew Barrymore’s bedroom that comes out at night when she is sleeping to suck away her breath and life?  Well, this should rekindle those fears…

Kage no Sekai

“Although at first glance it looks like a regular wooden table, if you look at the shadows on its surface you’ll see the movement of mysterious life forms. When you approach it to have a better look, they sense your presence and hide away. They do not emerge while human shadows are cast over the table, but the life forms hiding within a distant shadow are watching them.”
