I also had the misfortune to see a short TV programme about "the Body Farm" where forensic scientists study decaying corpses. I should have switched off, fast, but you don't do you? They only went and showed facial closeups of this man's body mutating from just-dead to two weeks or so 'gone'. I think the worst is about day 5, with hugely swollen face due to maggots erupting from mouth... Fuck me,I hope I get cremated immediately. Not that you'd care, at that point,I guess, but I'd hate to be responsible for someone being brain-scarred for life by finding something like that. Jeez...
I blew nearly 5 quid to see the NPG show of Watts portraits. Interesting, though; he was quite an intriguing painter, for a 'conventional' one. Incredible, when ya think he was self-taught, too. Also checked out the Photography awards, which was a bit too crowded. OK, but I didn't see anything that really 'got' me.
