About the project:
The installation presents a programmed, self-sustaining, digital ecosystem as an immersive environment, with organisms that consume, grow, metabolize, reproduce and respond to activities within an endless fluid environment. An artificial nature is not a simulation however, it is a new realm with its own logic, life forms and relational dynamics. This world does not live alone: the child-like curiosity that inspires our work is extended to the viewers, whose movements and actions influence the ecosystem as it unfolds, allowing world, organisms and viewers to partake in each other’s lived time.
Surgically Altered Ceramics by Beccy Ridsdel
UK-based artist Beccy Ridsdel creates fun yet strangely macabre interventions where ceramics have been surgically altered to reveal additional layers of detail. Where the metaphor of surgery might normally evoke blood and guts, Ridsdel instead reveals further floral patterns inside bone china plates and cups. The pieces are part of an ongoing examination regarding the perception of ceramics as craft or art. You can see more of her work over on Facebook and she has a few pieces for sale in her shop.
