Designed to fill a void left by late night terrestrial television, Topsafe TV curates and features new work by emerging filmmaking talent. Guaranteed to be weird, subversive and eclectic, Topsafe prides itself on presenting something different and, crucially, without boundaries due to its self-funding ethos. Topsafe’s directors want their artists to grow and evolve, free from the constraints of agenda; they actively encourage experimentation. Sometimes a breathtaking visual scrapbook, at other times a platform for fully-realised documentaries and pieces that are more experimental in tone and subject, Topsafe TV are currently launching one new piece a week, though eventually they hope to release work on a daily basis. The Uk’s capital is one of the world’s prime visual hubs, so Seen keenly anticipates that many London-based filmmakers will find a home on Topsafe TV.

MO-GA: Perfectly Imperfect

As the Sun shines on Earth, so MO-GA’s gender-fluid designs grace the bodies of everyone, rejoicing in ambiguity. Multiple sleeves and feathers recall the animal kingdom in all its glorious diversity; it’s a new aesthetic.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
