Daniel Cook , Fine Art, I really like this show, especially the large photograph on the stairs. He says in his artists statement that his work “focuses on engaging the ambiguity between reality and fiction”. His photographs have an eerie quality, there is something not quite right about the images but you can’t quite work out which parts of them are real and which are not.
It’s that time again, great opening night on Friday and the DJCAD 2011 Degree Show is now in full swing. To celebrate this week I am going to put up my 7 favourites from this year, one every day.
Starting with this work of genius from Tim Pryde in Product Design which will hopefully make chuggers obsolete. I chose this video of user interaction testing rather than the official video which you can see on Tims website, as I loved seeing the way people reacted to and interact with the robot.
He’s fixed the head falling off problem with some stronger glue apparently :)
In the week in which it was reported that he was finally able to talk to his family, after being detained by the Chinese authorities on 3rd April, I got to see the Ai Weiwei exhibition at The Lisson.
