Drawing completed, installed, please come to the PV....

Last weekend, Elizabeth and I met for the second time, both armed with papers, personal info and materials, to create our drawing, 'Please allow 30 days for search results'.  The drawing was installed by the BLANKMEDIA Collective team yesterday, and Liz will be going along this week to add some finishing touches to our work as part of the 'user generated content' exhibition.

The PV is this coming Thursday 2nd June 2011, 6-9pm at the MadLab, Manchester, and Liz will be present, but sadly I will be in China so will not be able to attend.  We would really love if you could make it along to the Private View, or along to see the show. 

Information on the exhibition below:

Location: MadLab, 36-40 Edge Street, Manchester, M4 1HN

Blank Media Collective curators are excited to present the exhibition User Generated Content. Working collaboratively with MadLab, the exhibition focuses on social media and its relevancy in this day and age.

From artists to arduino engineers, Blank Media Collective have searched ‘virtually’ every corner of the world to present to you the weird, wonderful and quirky things people are creating in the physical realm.

The diverse content of this exhibition includes Facebook stalking, ‘like’ popularity contests, Twitter drum, status-stealing poetry, political statements, never-ending YouTube feed, cakes, Flickr craft, moving image works, and a visual portrayal of an online relationship.

It is about Facebook, it is about Twitter, it is about virtual environments. The world in which we live has developed to the stage where we are now navigating our lives within a hybrid form of immaterial and real landscapes. User Generated Content is a term to describe the various interactive online activities.
