Camberwell external exhibition at the Rag Factory
A few weeks ago I went to the Camberwell's BA Grafic Design external show at the Rag Factory mainly to have a nose around the space, since we were to have our show in the same venue.
It wasn't a surprise the show was very good and full packed, so luckily Jackie and I made sure to get early so we could actually see the work up.
We were the first to get to try a real fun piece that involved a cheese 80's beach poster background a fan to blow your hair and a Fujifilm instant camera. We also gave the photo a go in tryng to get some effects on in by folding it before it's fully exposed, somethig we used to do when dear polaroids were not as horribly difficult to get; it did sort of work, but I guess there is gonna have to be a lot experimentation to find good little instant and uncontrolled special effects before fuji instand films get my heart. I have beeingtrying for ages to find the girl's who did this piece name, but seams impossible, she did not have a business card and the case for the photo she gave away with her email as only contact detail went missing... but I think her name was Sarah? ... no idea of surname... :(
The other piece I saw and which I consider my favourite in the show was 'Mechanicky Orgasmus' and very sexy video piece by Hellen Ralli. I found her work via Holy Ghost blog.
