SciArt Magazine has published an interview I did following up on my work in the recent ‘Embodied‘ exhibit. They had some hard questions!
“Desire Lines: an interstitial chart” is a project I’ve been working on that combines design, poems and images – including several from this blog – in the form of a large paper chart or map.
The map itself is a kind journey or rendered songline of encountered moments. The piece will be made folded down similar to a walker’s map – like UK Ordnance Survey maps.
The mock up video below was for the printer to show how I imagined the map might fold – it’s only an A4 sheet of paper so very tiny! (the actual chart is going to be A1).
I’m hoping that “Desire Lines” will be for sale soon, so if you think you might be interested in having a copy, or maybe giving a copy as a present – watch this space! There are some other tasters here.
If any fellow bloggers feel inclined to share this to their followers –
David Mach: Commando comic inspired art.
A short review (just for a change).
The Lamb Gallery in the Tower Building at Dundee University is an odd wee place. It’s not so much a room as a thoroughfare caught between fire doors and a lift. Into this are crammed a hotchpotch of old display cases which look like they perhaps could neither be found storage space nor be safely converted to shower cabinets or fishtanks, and so were filed here. Adding to the mix are some fiercely grim track lights primed with an array of distinctly low calibre econo-bulbs. (Keep going … this gets cheerier soon!)
