Hothouse talk: Russell Weekes

screen-shot-2016-11-14-at-17-04-28

I found out about Russell Weekes last year and thought that his work was so fascinating, so to go to his talk was really cool.

He talked a lot about how he has done a variety of different work and enjoys not having a specific field. He put this down to his way of thinking the fact that he takes “something and changes the way you view it”, he “gives someone enough but doesn’t spell it out for them”

He gave a lot of really good advice too, to do personal work even when you’re doing jobs because your personal work can often show people something unexpected. Also that if you want to send something to a company send a physical thing, it’s more personal and more likely to get seen. Another thing he mentioned was if they don’tΒ reply after you’ve sent something, send it againΒ and again.
