Really interesting art show - Michael Wolf Informal Arrangements at Flowers Gallery in Hackney.

Wolf lives in Hong Kong and documents how people assemble objects in public spaces, often to try and reclaim outdoor living space.

There are some extraordinary external piping and aircon arrangements...

+Paul Gray yes there is an IR sensor in the middle so that some of the lights turn on (and off) when someone moves past.

Really looking forward to being part of this great show made by innovative curator/artist +Kosha Hussain
 
My upcoming major group show is just around the corner and your official invitation is here.

Toys (Are Us) is an analysis of objects of play. Through the curation of new and existing works by an international cast of contemporary artists, this exhibition explores the impact toys and games have on human development, contemporary society and the environment. Installed within the historic maze-like Crypt Gallery in Euston, you’ll encounter a multidisciplinary survey of works that are also for sale.

A sales table will also offer the exclusive opportunity to purchase works of art.

Toys (Are Us) is an exhibition made by Kosha Hussain and co-curated by Chloé Dall’olio.

My artwork in Tate Modern!

I'm taking part in this cool (and free) event this weekend at Tate Modern. It's a "post-internet black market" and we open on Friday evening :)

I'll be showing my new project http://www.backdoored.io along with surveillance-themed art underpants and other merch...
20 – 22 May 2016*, arebyte Gallery will join Offprint London 2016 to host London's first ever Internet Yami-Ichi (Black Market) event at Tate Modern as part of Offprint London 2016. The fair will showcase up to 20 local and international artists working mainly in digital and net-based practices ...

I've just published a blog post about the making of one of my sculptures.

#art #arduino #iot  
An art project I've been working with the idea of an Internet of Needy Things. Art objects needing that most precious resource - your attention.

I got one of my Augenblick panels working with a nice rechargeable mobile phone power bar, kindly supplied by +DesignSparkRS - thanks +Pete Wood

Previously I had some hokey arrangement with little coin cell batteries which only lasted a few hours at a time :)

Yip - that would be about right though IMHO a Cat's life is better as they get there own front door.

Interesting enough dogs and wolves all originated DNA wise from Foxes and part of what science labels - Canidae.

Haha yes good plan +Paul Gray though he might be disappointed to find that skirts are equally taxed ;)

Maybe nudism is the best option (actually that's a terrifying thought in his case!)

Hmm, skills... I can cook a surprisingly tasty meal from random ingredients on single ring or camping stove. I can touch my nose with my tongue. I can dance in ridiculously high heels and only occasionally fall over.

The travertine terraces are spectacular, like an alien landscape. Worth the visit, which is saying something because the site is a total gruelling tourist trap. Go very early or in the evening to avoid the worst of the crowds

Nice cafe. Especially pleasant (and buzzing) in the evenings. Only place we found in Selçuk serving cocktails. Good ice cream and iced coffee too.

Lovely hotel. Friendly hosts, and a lovely pool surrounded by garden. Good food and an amazing breakfast spread. Must be the nicest place to stay in Pamukkale, and amazing value for money.
