Spinning Tongues exhibition

My animation 'neCessITY, capaCITY, toxiCITY' will be shown alongside a host of other films and video art pieces as part of an exhibition entitled 'Spinning Tongues'. The exhibition is organised by Rotareliefs and takes place from 11th - 16th October at the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane. Here's a little bit about the event: 

"Derived from the formal idea of ‘multidisciplinary’, the work commissioned by Rotoreliefs has the objective of creating a platform for the exchange of the different languages that exist between disciplines and cultures, with the aim of enriching all of the arts by means of the influence and exchange of each with the others. It is not just a question of promoting one discipline with artists from one country, but rather to create a network of connections between other cultures and disciplines to encourage, enrich and fuel art in all of its senses."

The video arts, films and live performances will take place at the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane on Sunday October 11th from 11am to 5pm with the gallery exhibition taking place until October 16th. The opening day event will cost 5 pounds and 80% of the earnings from the door will go to the artists.

As part of the Dublin Theatre Festival, Dublin's tallest building Liberty Hall is being turned into a giant canvass.

“Powering the display are 100,000 low-energy LED lights, installed into 330 windows on the south and west faces of the building. These lights can illuminate each window as a solid colour turning it into a tiny pixel that’s part of a giant display.”

PLAYHOUSE is currently running from dusk till dawn for 18 nights since the 24th of September until the 11th of October. Using the tools on the site you can design and submit your animations. Here's the clip of my animation 'take off' which was displayed in the wee hours of Friday morning in Dublin's fair city.

Here are some drawings I did in the Victoria and Albert museum last Sunday. I'm relieved to be getting back into the habit of drawing after working mainly on the computer over the past few months. It's basically looking and thinking, but it's something that requires constant practice.
