New stuff, and some old:
- erase labs are an ancient gathering ground for experiments and web doodles, defunct until recently when I was encouraged to revive them by the simple starfield CSS sketch. All source code provided.
- In my day job, as web developer at Goldsmiths art college, we've just relaunched the Student and Staff parts of the site, the first phases of a comprehensive restructure/redesign. It's quite an improvement.
- Photos are also now up from the Ad Hoc gig at Cybersonica Çonic Social. Good night in a good little venue.
I've been gigging around more as Ad Hoc over the past few weeks, from a warehouse party in the industrial hinterland surrounding the Blackwall Tunnel, to next Wednesday's Cybersonica Çonic Social. As a consequence, I've spruced up the website with a series of new photos plus a recording of last night's live set at Dust, Clerkenwell.
There's also much more original material coming soon...
Your Collective is a group of art students based at Camberwell College of Art (including What They Could Do's Josh Pollen) whose stated aim is to accept and execute proposals from the public realm. The resulting work will then be displayed in their online gallery space.
They're currently seeking proposals, ideas and briefs for their first call, based around photographic work.
Tell us what to do. Please include whether you want us complete your brief in an hour, a day or a week.
The suggestions can be abstract or literal, should primarily be of photographic nature though. We have the last word, so to speak. We will interpret the briefs subjectively after our own ideas and select the medium (sculpture, short film, photograph...) . The final outcome will probably be some kind of interactive online gallery.
Send your proposals directly via email (yourcollective (at) yahoo (dot) com) or post it on our blog: YOUR COLLECTIVE.
Here are some possible examples for proposals:
- Find a solution
- Take a picture of dirty laundry
- Photograph your happiness
- Make somebody happy
- Look up, look down
- Be bold
- Create an image that doesn't last
