Watching Coral Grow

Corals and sponges build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives. These animals are actually very mobile creatures. However their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen.


Anna Gibb's Architectural Daydreams

Architect and illustrator Anna Gibb’s drawings of cities span Hong Kong to Glasgow – and bring to life the rich histories of their buildings.

Paris: ‘In the shadow of Montmartre with the imposing Sacré-Coeur, Paris is
strewn along La Seine, with the island of Île de la Cité marking its ancient heart.
Vying for attention are its notable landmarks, and of course, that tower.
To the east you can just see Bercy on the horizon’
Havana is an island so completely different to the rest of Cuba.
Its old town has little changed in the past few hundred years’

A Place to Draw by Anna Gibb is on show at Dreamspace Gallery, London EC1, to 30 June
