Murmurs I: Things We Must

We should learn how to drive for various reasons

We should own a few bunnys

We must find new forms of education to chew on

We must love Sayaka Ganz who recycles plastic junk and cutlery into beautiful works of art

We must forget about gravity and the things that pull us down for fuck's sake

We must understand the reasons why love isn't always there for us

We must all embrace sexy bannisters when given the chance

We must try to lose weight before Easter festivities arrive

We must travel the plastic bags of love with installation artist Sarah Sze

We must all have sex with Jeff Koons

We must admire the green giants who grow overblueseas

We must free ourselves from the boxes and the system (artist Tom Friedman)

We must learn to love machines before they learn to hate us

We must all get fucked!

We must love unknowingly, always two stitches at a time

We must all idolise James Dean

We must not fear our anxieties and our paranoia

A Perk of Life: Jennifer Taylor's "Ground Control" at The Wapping Project

This month I assisted Jennifer Taylor (Flowers Gallery) on her new installation at The Wapping Project. (Christian Ferreira Projects). Here are some pictures from this little perk of artistic life.

Chair painted white

Air dough sausages and flour balloons

wrapped up rings/hoops and the backstage studio workshop

Having fun transporting the Hydroball on Techymeister's van.

The lovely jobs of spraying all the objects white either using spray paint or the compressor/air gun.

This became a cool and fun job for me and it was great because I could begin to measure the progress from what was not white, to what became white.

Often than not, certain objects had particular surfaces that the paint became difficult to stick to and needed a large number of coats and spraying.

Rotating on jobs. Dave Chalkley, a sculpture technician.

Spray cans

Balls balls balls...

The Techymeister's van...

We all get stuck in. Gemma Butterworth is also here.

Almost there. Finally the work is all complete. Josh from the Wapping Project helped with the hanging using the harness. Next stop was the private view and a chance to enjoy all the hard work that had gone into making and curating this adventurous space oddity. Here are some pictures of the work completed.
