PermaCultures Artist Talk: Simon Blackmore


First Thursday at SPACE PermaCultures Artist Talk: Simon Blackmore Thursday 7 May 6.30pm SPACE,Hackney To conclude the first Permacultures residency, Manchester based artist Simon Blackmore will talk about his work and his residency at SPACE. During his time at SPACE Blackmore adapted an open source rapid prototyping machine to convert electro-magnetic activity (such as electro-magnetic frequencies as used by mobile phones) into beautiful animated drawings. Blackmore creates sculptures with a lo-fi aesthetic drawing on influences from woodworking, hobby style electronics and open source software. The time consuming process of these works aims to question the role of the individual in relation to the mechanisms of a technologically driven society. Alongside his solo practice Blackmore collaborates with Antony Hall and Steve Symons under the name 'Owl Project'. Combining rustic woodworking, electronics and experimental music, pieces such as ‘Sound Lathe', 'Log1ks' and 'ilogs' have been exhibited and demonstrated live nationally and internationally. London and Berlin based artist Nick Laessing has been selected for the next PermaCultures residency in July 2009. Also at SPACE for First Thursday 6pm — 9pm Join in with Belgrade based art activist collective Skart in an informal evening of creative collaboration! Skart's current retrospective exhibition 'On the Origin of Wishes' will be open for late night viewing. SPACE, 129-131 Mare St, London E8 3RH Map:
