Episode 15: Nowhere, Arckit, Arts Council funding for 2015

With Nowhere at its one year anniversary, Sebastian Stephenson speaks to Brian Telling, one of the co-founders of Nowhere menswear store. We see how the store is doing after 1 year, we discuss the purpose of the store which is challenging and questioning what masculinity is and can be. We also of course talk though some of the items in the store(from €250 Tracksuit trouser to the perfect jumper for a Shannon airport protest) and the hardest question for Brian; what masculinity means to him. We also report on a architecture modelling kit called Arckit and talk though some of the funding opportunities still available from the Arts Council.

Segment 1: ArcKit

ArcKit is described by Damien Murtagh as a working tool. ArcKit, the Arc for Architecture and Kit for kit, is a tool to figure out and work though designing spaces. Using model components that unlike traditional architectural models, can be moved around and rearranged with no effort. However ArcKit is not strictly a physical tool, in fact you can layout with the same model components inside Sketchup and Autodesk's Revit. However Damien tells me it not just architects that are you using the kit.
