In Birmingham (after a great show at the Glee Club) and visited the Ikon gallery to see the Len Lye show, ‘The Body Electric’. Crazy kinetic sculptures sat alongside hand-painted films containing incredible images. Here’s a photogram of legendary architect Le Corbusier and a still from one of the films. Such an inventive man.
