Who’s heading to Clerkenwell this year?! This month is a busy one filled with so much to see but if you’re travelling down to London from up North, you’re probably only heading down for the night and we know how hard it is trying to squeeze everything into a short trip! To help you out we’ve whittled down some of our top picks of things to visit within a short and sweet flying visit.


Reflect Us


“ An invitation. A challenge. A pause from life. It’s easy to become numb from the people around us, so artist Beau Kerouac invites you to look closer. Stop and reflect at the immensity of the small, at the beauty of the biological, the detail of the extraordinary. Reflect Us is an opportunity to look deeply externally and internally. We all have insecurities; passions; our sights set on something. We all have eyes, and yet how often do you look deeply into the eyes of a stranger? This impressive art installation is crafted from macro photographs of eyes of the homeless, and invites you to look at the majesty and fragility of the human condition.”

Bottle House Installation


“ Every minute 1 million plastic bottles are bought or sold all over the world. That’s about 20,000 every second. Once the bottles are empty, they become worthless waste. Some may get recycled, most get dumped into landfill or our oceans and now there’s literally tonnes of plastic washing up on our beaches – all around the world – contaminating our natural habitats and endangering the worlds wildlife.small. | Six Miles Across London Ltd. with support from WSP Design Studio are taking action to translate this problem into a social enterprise through cutting edge but low tech design and innovation which can transform this waste into something of tangible value that can be used for providing shelter, healing communities, cities, oceans and our planet. BottleHouse® uses disregarded, empty plastic bottles and applies combined skills in architectural design, engineering and construction to transform this empty bottle into a building block – to form a temporary, but thermally comfortable, structurally sound, unique form of shelter that can protect the occupants from both solar radiation and precipitation. “
