Ruby's Room / derelict obscura series King's Cross 2009
Upon the interior wall of a faded pink room in a derelict block of flats in King's Cross, The Culross Buildings ,was scrawled a note in the hand of a child, it said 'Please look after my room, i grew up here, i like my room, i am sad to leave, love Ruby xxx.'
Upon finding the note, a plea from a young child, stickers of unicorns half scratched from the windows,
and stickers of stars on the back of the door, this camera obscura room was named ' Ruby's Room' an ode to childhood,
to a young girl who had to leave the flats with her family due to the regeneration of King's Cross. King's Cross Boulevard
now stands on the ground where The Culross Buildings once stood, the derelict block of flats demolished in
Autumn/Winter 2010. The rollerskates and the yellow stool were found in the block of flats, and placed in ' Ruby's Room' .
In Autumn 2012, a girl wrote to the studio, to say that her mother had seen the work, and that she recognised the image Ruby's Room
to be her room, her home, she had to leave with the rest of the tennants in 1999 when she was 10 years old, and in 2012 she was 22 yrs old. She wrote, ' I am Ruby, from Ruby's Room '.

'KINGS CROSS STORIES'
Caroline Collinge Minnie Weisz Aidan Andrew Dun
A psycho-geographical descent into the mysteries of Kings Cross
Minnie Weisz continues her exploration of King’s Cross with an exhibition curated in her gallery space under the Victorian arches on Pancras Road. An installation collaboration with Caroline Collinge transforming the space under the arches into a house of memories, reinventing stories of Kings Cross, past, present, real and imagined. Through film, photography, collage, printed ephemera and set design, dreamscapes of Kings Cross are woven into a poetic narrative. Poet Aidan Andrew Dun will be reading from his epic poem ' Vale Royal ', first launched at the Royal Albert Hall in 1995 published by Goldmark.

Blueprint chose the LFA to hold their triumphant 25th birthday party, filling a disused dairy in Kings Cross with the great and the good of modern British design. It was a fine reflection of the magazine’s influence over the years, and the assembled crowd was addressed by one of the original backers, a proud Sir Terence Conran, and its original publisher, LFA supremo Peter Murray. The festivities were arranged around The Diary of a Derelict Dairy, a refreshingly gritty art show curated by Minnie Weisz. Having haunted the fast-changing Kings Cross district for several years now, Weisz continues to stay one step ahead of the rapid regeneration process and uses, using abandoned spaces and places as both showcases and generators of new artworks.
