Day 1 - Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles. En route to the Bahamas with Linda to see our son William. A break from the stale dirty air of plane-land and a swim in the sea. I catch some waves body surfing until one inexplicably dumps me on the bottom mid ride, and I come up with a scarred and bloody nose. Linda nearly gets washed out in a rip. We eat and return to LAX where it is safer in the air.

Winter here in New Zealand doesn't see any sign of hibernation in the David Trubridge camp. Instead, it signals the beginning of a busy, intense period of international shows. We've been incredibly lucky to participate in many of these over the years, valuing the opportunity to participate in the dialogue, activity and often potential collaborations which emerge from these events.
Milan 2013 was a particularly special event for David Trubridge. It saw the international release of his new book, 'So Far', exploring the holistic relationship between his art and his life as an adventurer, husband and father.
It is Saturday March 2nd at the David Trubridge building in Whakatu village. Inside the workshop it is quiet; a new installation piece lies under wraps, soon bound for Milan and New York where it will be scrutinised by international design aficionados. Outside, however, there is a large crowd and a busy hum: it is the day of Junk to Funk.
