There's an internet shop a few doors down. It's called Galaxzy. The sign above the door says Galaxy, but the signmaker got it wrong. The actual name has a 'z'. Musa said the signmaker corrected his spelling: making it right, but wrong. I suppose he was trying to help.


Help is complex. I've made plenty of work that was trying to help. Community engagement, public outreach. It's hard to know how much it helped. It's easier to know how much goes in a cash register. 

So I told Musa I wasn't trying to help. I was doing it for my portfolio - for myself - "as if guided by an invisible hand". I mentioned Adam Smith, the father of modern capitalism, who thought society benefits when everyone acts in their own self-interest. Musa gave me a funny look. I said it wasn't really how I see things.

I asked him about the spelling. Galaxy.co.uk wasn't available when he tried to buy it, so he bought the next best thing and named the shop to match. Visit Galaxzy.co.uk - and tell him I sent you. You'll get fifteen minutes free internet with the code: 'Invisible_Hand'.

Visible at all times from the street at Ruby Cruel and in Galaxzy, 253 Well Street.​
