It was the opening of Virtual Neighbour last night, an exhibition of objects both real and simulated in the front room of a house in East Arbour Street. It included a new, very beautiful sculptural piece by Romilly SS, which have turned virtual surprisingly successfully. I’m not sure my photographs convey either the real or the virtual adequately:-
There are other things by her on display as well:-

Such beautiful things. But I have clearly – in my late 50s – retained the ability to still be shocked by how things have changed in my old neighbourhood. I walked down East Arbour Street regularly in the 1970s/ early 80s as my mum had an office job for decades at Thames Magistrates Court which was then based in the building at the end of the street. It was a very social workplace and I used to pop in on my way home from school. The idea that it now houses an art gallery is causing some cognitive dissonance!
Yes, I can imagine, but all the neighbours were there at the opening, some of whom whom had been there for the last fifty years at least. Charles
