The Dead Class by Tadeusz Kantor

Dead Class (1975) was the most famous of Tadeusz Kantors theatre pieces of the 1970s. In the play, Kantor himself played the role of a teacher who presided over a class of apparently dead characters who are confronted by mannequins which represented their younger selves. He had begun experimenting with the juxtaposition of mannequins and […]

FILM is an 11-minute silent 35mm film projected onto a gigantic white monolith standing 13 metres tall at the end of a darkened Turbine Hall. It is the first work in The Unilever Series devoted to the moving image, and celebrates the masterful techniques of analogue film-making as opposed to digital.

Seen in the Saatchi gallery London.

Ai Weiwei So Sorry

Ai Weiwei – creator of Tate Modern’s “sunflower seeds” installation – has been placed under house arrest because he planned a huge party to mark the demolition of his newly built Shanghai studio. Another example of the Great Firewall of China (censorship in China). This resulted in the exhibition being closed down in the turbine hall […]

This local court had met at “Elephant and Castle, Newington” on 21 March 1765. Previously the site was occupied by […]

World War 2 Heroes

Interesting – you don’t want to hold a bomb on your chest – no easy life in submarines, me thinks. That’s brave and well deserved a vc medal. I don’t like that war shit but I like history and interesting facts.

Ai Weiwei In The Tate Modern Turbine Hall

There are 100 million sunflower seeds laid out in the turbine hall in London’s Tate Modern Turbine Hall. It took two and a half year to make all of the porcelain sunflower seeds. There were 1,600 Chinese people working on it.

London Fighter

A Harrier jump jet has been hung from the roof of Tate Britain like a trussed up bird. Fiona Banner, the artist, dreamt up the installation as a way of asking why fighter planes were so glorified in mainstream culture. Banner said she was “seduced” by the beauty of fighter jets but wondered why there […]

Saatchi Gallery Kings Road

The Saatchi Gallery is a cool place, very modern art and very well kept. In 2010 it was announced that the gallery would be given to the British public, becoming the Museum of Contemporary Art for London. Saatchi’s goal is to show contemporary work that would otherwise not be seen in big London institutions such as Tate […]

Metal Look

This is one my favourite HDR pictures. It simple and without lots of contrasts – brings out the best metallic look and is great for high dynamic range I think. The picture is a boat by the way – taken in Maritime Museum London Greenwich.

During the period of the British Library, access was restricted to registered researchers only; however, reader’s credentials were generally available to anyone who could show that they were a serious researcher. The […]

Dan Flavin Green Room

Dan Flavin Green Room

Dan Flavin – the art of fluorescent light! The artist uses limitation of his art moderne of materials to commercially available fluorescent tubing inserting it into the world of high art. The resulting body of work at once possesses a straightforward simplicity and a deep sophistication.
