At the same time I was designing this pop-up laboratory, also from the Institute. The brilliant Martin Campbell moved into Southside Studios, and it has been great to have him around. I saw a recent piece of his which used this wooden meccano technique, so I drew up a plan for the lab based on it, Martin made it and I painted and finished it. It fastens together using wooden pegs, and is windproof but also very lightweight. These kind of spontaneous collaborations make the studios an exciting place to be, and help us all raise our game.
The first performance of Call of Nature is this Sunday, and I can't wait to see everything coming together into a show!
