On my 21st Birthday my parents bought me a book…called ROCI; Rauschenberg Overseas Culture interchange.

In this book Robert Rauschenberg created a series of travel adventures in response to each location that he visited between 1984-1990.

He changed the way I looked at design – Inanimate found objects, decoupage, printing techniques, the use of colour and space. 

He showed me how to use readily available collectables to be part of my life’s scrap book and part of my work.

So you can imagine my excitement when I finally managed to visit the Tate Modern to see the works in the flesh.

So my recommendation for anyone in London…Tate Modern Rauschenberg on to the 2nd April.

A personal hero and a real visual treat!
