Bill Burns - the man behind Safety Gear for Small Animals and one of the few owners of the Taxidermia Wurzeltodensis Award who's never actually created taxidermy - will be talking and signing copies of The Flora and Fauna Information Service at the ICA London tomorrow, January 31, 2008, from 6 - 8 PM.

The talk will be held in context of Burns' The Flora & Fauna Information Service exhibition which is on show at the ICA until February 15, 2008.

The show also includes Burns' celebrated collection of Safety Gear for Small Animals and Boiler Suits for Primates - a miniature sample of everything prisoners get when they arrive at the prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

    Grrrr, mad I missed you in London! And sad I could not go to this, as I had another commitment that night! But I did get to the Wellcome Center, which was glorious. Have you been? XO

    I know.. it's a disgrace! I'll be moving to England soon (Brighton), so maybe we can meet another time when you come visit again.

    Yup, I went to the Wellcome Center, but it was so damn cold inside. I think someone set the air condition to freezing level. So I had to move from one display cabinet to another while jumping up and down to keep warm. It was still worth the visit though.

    I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your London trip. x
