Five things this Friday
There’s a review of A Slow Take over at Eye Contact site. It’s written by John Hurrell. I was introduced to John at the opening (thanks Maggie!) and noticed later in the evening he was having a close look at my work, which was great to see. And I find it’s interesting he mentions Billy Apple as I was thinking of one of his works just the other week.
Two images I liked on instagram this week. Click through to go to the original post.
Yup, that’s Blinky Palermo.
Choir! Choir! Choir! + David Byrne singing David Bowie’s Heroes. Discovered one morning this week – a slow start and then… well, what a way to start my day.
A short article looking at the Japanese perspective of space. The author looks at four types of space:
- Relational space (wa)
- Knowledge-mobilizing space (ba)
- Location (tokoro)
- Negative space (ma)
“Instead of being about the built environment, the Japanese words for space center on the interactions and relationships among people.”
”In Japan, a building can’t be in Tokyo without Tokyo being in the building.”
