Discovering the power of Science Fiction

Science fiction has fascinated me since I was a child. I’ve watched, read and played lots of different kinds of science fiction over the years and it’s entertained and even inspired me. My love of science fiction is one of, if not the biggest reason I was interested in science at school, did a degree in Chemistry and ended up working at a place like Eureka!

Dales pub where they still race ferrets - with bonus video

There is a pub in the charismatic Yorkshire Dales village of Appletreewick called the Craven Arms. It has flagged floors, real fires, gas lighting and all the snug nooks and crannies one could hopes for from a 16th century inn. Sited at the rear is its undisputable crowning glory, a traditionally built cruck barn – hand-crafted from bent oak trees, with walls insulated with sheep’s wool and rendered with traditional lime and horse hair, and roofed with a hand-pulled heather ling thatch.

What’s left

What’s left behind

Artist Jenny Zigzag lives in the same house in Shipley that 100 years previous was home to a woman called Poole. Old indentures say that the house was “in the occupancy of Mrs Poole” or “formerly in the occupancy of Mrs Poole and now unoccupied”; no first name, no husband, no family, no occupation. Meanwhile, the significance of the innumerable, mysterious and very visible symbols carved in old kerbstones all around the area is forgotten. Ordinary, half-lost things become all that is left as a memorial to someone gone by. In this exhibition Jenny investigates memory and loss, the marks we make and the things we leave behind. The results are at Hebden Bridge Town Hall from January 30 to March 4.
