Skiving

Yesterday, I spent the day skiving. I avoided doing any work at all and instead had a fun day exploring Melbourne.

First it was a necessity, then it was a hobby and now it's a sport? Guh.

I’ll be going back to the Len Lye exhibition at the ACMI. I had seen his work at the Govett-Brewster gallery in New Plymouth, but the curators have done a fab job to bring it to Federation Square and I was inspired all over again. The animations are mesmerising. Also, I love his kinetic sculpture, ‘Blade’ which is very simple, but surprising in action, so much so it made me laugh out loud (I wasn’t the only one!).

I finished the day at Melbourne Sustainability Drinks before I pedaled home, further inspired.
