Squid Soup Infestation at Phoenix Square
Squid Soup Infestation at Phoenix Square

There is a great - albeit creepy - installation on at Phoenix Square at the moment. Infestation by Squid Soup is in the Cube and features a host of projected spiders and bugs that you can interact with! As you walk around you invariably end up squashing a few, but luckily plenty of new ones appear to replace them! It's great fun to play with and it on until the 10th June. See a few pictures here, but to experience it properly get down to Phoenix Square.

Memory Mirror - Final Week
Memory Mirror - Final Week

Today marks the start of the final week of my Memory Mirror exhibition at Phoenix Square in Leicester. The interactive artwork seems to have gone down well sand has captured over 2,000 video clips of visitors. I‘ll work out how many visitors this represents, but it must be in the hundreds.

The next outing of this piece will be at the Summer Sundae Festival on 12/13/14th August. Then on the 22nd August there will be some new work of mine on show at The Interact Gallery.

See the Phoenix Square website for information about the exhibition.
