Eyes For Glittering Objects

A new piece of work to come out of working from the exhibition...

Eyes For Glittering Objects

Assembled from lifestyle magazine images and disposable household items Eyes For Glittering Objects plays with the 2 dimensional nature of desire, aspiration and status.

This work is purposefully playful and constructed with a philosophy rooted in Brechtian theory.

Mixed media assemblage

Mid-way-point. sort of.

Here how the exhibition looks right now...

late opening...

Sorry for the silence, here's a new project to make up for it.

I'd been saving my new work to launch my new look exciting website, however it is taking a little longer than planned... as way of an apology here is what I am up to at this very moment!

Double bill! exhibition

Sunday 21st - Saturday 27th July 13:00 - 17:00 2013

The Artworks project space at The Barbican Art Trust Studios, Blackhorse Lane will combine elements of exhibition and workshop to create a week long exploration of how we use, share and occupy space.

The show will consist of participatory sculptural installation. I will be present and making new work in response to workshops and discussions throughout the exhibition. Please come along to talk, make, share!

i made a tool to measure space

//            //            //

The objects consist of different coloured fabric sections which refer to Edward T Hall's proximity space: In his theory 18" = Intimate space, 48” = Personal space, 144” = social space & 300” = public space. It explores the idea of Hall’s definitive and definite rule, how it works in reality and how it can be used to define/redefine our own space.

It is constructed with a Brechtian philosophy in mind and attempts to physically manifest the absurdity of theories used to manage and understand society. It is an exploration the societal notions and expectations of how we occupy spaces and gives a means to play in this arena.

i am surrounded by objects that define me

This project follows an earlier body of work "some even grew rich and became the object of their neighbours envy" and continues to explore status and the notion of aspirational objects.

This is first event in a year-long project researching making, sharing and subsequent archiving.
