Philagrafika 2010: Temple Gallery

The Graphic Unconscious at Temple Gallery… starting with some pics of Superflex’s Copy Light. From their project description… “Copy Light is a workshop that produces paper-shaded hanging lamps, each printed with the image of a famous copyrighted lamp design. The lights are constructed and hung in the gallery as they are made, gradually filling and illuminating the space. Conceptually, the lights occupy a position somewhere between an original and a copy, in the words of the artists “an in-between mode of working that has the potential to disrupt convention.” This is a great cross-over piece in terms of art and design…

Truth be told, at a huge event like SGC I don’t always have the energy/time to read all the exhibition info so I’ve been trying to get in the habit of photographing the didactics as well as the art. Sometimes I remember and sometimes I don’t but I’m glad I thought to snap a pic of Francesc Ruiz’s project explanation… Newsstand is great and one of my favorites from the whole city-wide festival.

I can’t see one of these without being reminded of this.

Korean supergroup Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries had a digital video/jazz/poetry thing happening in the back room with was a welcome respite from the crowded conference scene.

And I have to admit, I never got around to seeing the Swoon work that was installed somewhere streetside. Too many things to see in too short of an amount of time.
