Friday 30th March: Grace Ladoja Studio Visit




Today marks two special occasions - both interrelated and connected.  Firstly its Grace Ladoja's birthday and secondly, its the first day the NIKE+ Fuel Band goes on sale in the UK.  Grace and I went to the launch of the new energy measuring product in New York in January and have both been road-testing our own device ahead of general release.  You can see Grace's black wooden gift box here with her  post-it note apple at her studio which is brimming with all of her photography paraphernalia.  Grace is never without a camera to always catch the moments, times and faces surrounding her - some exposed to film and some uploaded to her Tumblr.  There you will see her snaps from the different exhibitions she's been to recently - as indicated by the flyers on her pinboard  - Jeremy Deller, Yayoi Kusama, TheWProject.  I visited Grace to discuss making a special piece for a musician she is shooting a new video for, so watch this space to find out who it is and the incredible wardrobe coming together for the promo.................. 
If you've been following our NIKE+ Fuel adventure and fancy trying one out for yourself - head down to the  NikeFuel Station at Boxpark, 2-4 Bethnal Green Rd, London, E1 6GY TODAY, where a very limited number of Nike+ FuelBands went on sale at 11am this morning - 1st come, 1st serve ................. and #makeitcount
