It’s a really physical way of drawing so it presented a bridge between my existing computer work and my pencil drawings. The last couple of updates for Tilt Brush have suddenly made it a much more dynamic and less lumpen piece of software. Previously it seemed solely good at creating a dramatic visual demonstration of VR. The addition of the ability to shift your scale allowed me to use it to present an environment at the exhibition. In a lot of ways it was like exhibiting a huge Photoshop file for people to explore/take apart... I really like the simplicity with which you can now draw huge spaces very quickly using a basic intuitive interface, and the ability for Tilt Brush to now import pre-existing models also massively diversifies and expands what it can do. It allowed me to jump between Tilt Brush, Kodon and Blender and form a (reasonably!) smooth workflow.

Roland Barthes, the French cultural theorist, spent three weeks in China in 1974 as part of propaganda tour organised by Beijing, and he appeared to have sulked through most of it. Reacting to the cliché-spouting guides comment that Chinese gymnastics (which probably meant tai chi) had benefits for body and mind, Barthes entertained himself by jotting down in his notebook mens fada in corpore salop (a dull mind in a slutty body), misquoting the Latin...

Each year at the CES technology show, companies like LG, Samsung, and Intel flaunt their latest innovations. Supercomputers the size of a credit card, 4K TVs as thin as wallpaper, and smartphones that can 3D map their environment were just a few of the inventions showcased during this year's exhibition. But while CES can be a showcase for trends that are likely to dominate the tech world over the coming months, it's also home to the bizarre and strange. This year's conference, which officially concluded on Jan. 8, included demonstrations of everything from smart hairbrushes to intelligent toothbrushes and shoes that suck up dust and crumbs as you walk. Here's a look at some of the strangest devices from the CES show floor this year.

For being something of a non-conformist, she refuses to be pigeonholed. After half a century of challenging the art world, Maggi Hambling has a new exhibition at the British Museum. Entitled Touch," the exhibition features 40 works, many of which have never been seen in public before. Primarily on paper and ranging from early pieces right through to some of her most recent works, the show reveals how drawing is at the heart of her artistic practice.
