If you haven’t seen any of the physical publications, try and get hold of one, they’re great!
Just a quick post to highlight a great blog!
I was made aware thanks to my good pal Sarah Smizz.
We’re hatching a plan for city wide domination! Not really, but we are pulling together a great proposal for an exhibition that will *hopefully* be in Manchester. If not, probably Sheffield. We’re very excited!
I wish I could be at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo but alas, I can’t. In person. But I could be telepresent; that is, to give the appearance that I’m present or have an effect at a location other than the one I’m physically in. This is no new concept, but it is an integral part of an exhibition at the Expo by Graham Smith and Christina Smith of Cybercity Ruhr.
The exhibition allows for robots to be manually controlled and manoeuvred through tiny streets. They can be controlled ‘locally’, over a game step pad, or ‘world wide’, over the internet. This enables the viewer to explore the environment as a pedestrian would, without actually being there.
Generally, the exhibition explores urbanism, spatial needs, interactivity with urban and built environments, identity and cultural exchange. But personally, ides of community, isolation and alienation are key.
For more info have a look HERE.
Some collages which are from the REFLECTIONS series. I’m working from these in 3D.
I will be part of an exhibition in Slovakia called Mish Mash. The show will be split into two parts, the first will be in the Hrad Castle in Bratislava (I will doing one of my balloon installations), and the second part will be at the gallery, where I’ll be showing 3 new collages. Exciting! If you can make it, come along.
