Assemble Your Own Book: Lucas Ihlein in Publicity at Artspace

Lucas Ihlein's residency in Petersham became the blog the Sham and now becomes an object, that is to say a book, and one that you have to put together yourself. It's all about becoming and collaboration. At Publicity at Artspace.

My copy speaks volumes about me: A little bit rough around the edges, shoddily stapled and with a special misprinted cover and inscribed "Foe Margie, Where we sat in my kitchen. xx Lucas 24/5/07" I will post pictures as soon as the batteries are recharged :).

Bill Smith at PPOW

I wish I could see them move....

" These mechanized assemblages derive from natural laws and principles, such as chaos theory, fractal geometry and biomathematics. For Smith, these systems are the means by which to organize the larger world, as well as the basis for an artistic language that elucidates our appreciation of nature and its essential beauty.
Smith’s installation consists of multiple sculptural elements created out of natural and man-made found objects. His materials range from industrial supplies, like fine grade steel wires, to electrical and computer-controlled parts, up to and including glass beads, insect specimens and rare-earth magnets. His chandelier-like sculptures call to mind biomorphic structures such as jellyfish, viruses (magnified), or dandelion seeds, each then set in motion by the air flow of tiny fans or the viewer’s movements."
