A collaborative exhibition with Alex Gross at Berlin's Infernoesque project room.
Into the Desert was based on a period of collaborative drawing while reminiscing about our USA road trip exhibition series. From these drawings we made a series of glass sculptures and a fuzzy white Swedish modernist habitat to place them in.
This is a large series of works running from 2005 into 2006. The works all used a huge stock of redundant but working computers, gathered over the year. The series ended with an exhibition at Edinburgh's Embassy Gallery.
This artwork used Google as a tool to
highlight our associations between word and image.
Working from a list of around 70 words, Google's image search feature
was used to find the 20 most viewed images for each word, which
were appropriated to create 60 second slide show-style videos.
This project was initially presented as a video installation for
an exhibition in September/October 2004 at the G2 Gallery, Chicago
I started the Blank Sign as a performance
in February 2003. The premise was simple: holding a large blank
placard, I stood on Glasgow's busiest street for a regular period
of time (12-5) every day for a week. The artwork was a diary, which
detailed what people had thought the sign was about.
Since this initial performance, I have repeated the work, and taken
it do different cities (and countries). The method of presentation
has also varied, and encompasses book, sound, video and photography.
