Electric Blue \

The vibrant and schizophrenic colours of Kerala in India made a big impression on me, from the ornate costumes of gods returning to earth to political street slogans to entire houses painted a single sickly colour.

Looking through my photos when I returned, this photo of the outside of an electric blue train stood out.  I put it on my wall and bought some jazzy trousers to match. I'm naturally reticent about colour but this trip taught me to take a more relaxed approach. For 'The Hub' at Coventry University we proposed intense injections of colours to draw the eye to certain features – the entrances, the reception, the bar - and it really works.
