One + One an exhibition of new work from Daniel Eatock

Developed over the course of his Stanley Picker Fellowship, Eatock has been preparing an extensive series of proposals for new object-based works that each establishes a range of formal, practical or conceptual conceits connecting two otherwise independently existing objects. Whilst remaining firmly embedded in his wider hybrid practice, these sculptural object-scenarios have also been originated as part of initial developmental research for the re-branding of the national television network BBC2.”

I like these as pieces of art, the mention of him rebranding bbc2 is definitely intriguing! If you’ve never had a look before then check out everything on his website he’s a very interesting guy with a jam-packed site!

Melancholy Objects by Tim Morton (@the_eco_thought) Jan 2012 “…In reading a poem you are being an archeologist…” Tim’s comments on Melancholia (a fantastic film) are brilliant. I could listen to his talks all day; transformative!
