Design Cities - Istanbul Modern

I was fortunate to be included in the selection for a new exhibition called design citites which starts in the Istanbul Modern before moving to London's Design museum in September.

Some information on the exhibition:

This exhibition, curated by Deyan Sudjic, looks at the history of design from the mid-19th century through to the present. It stresses the conjunction of urban centers with great designers and traces how these have moved around the world until the present.

This exhibition will give the opportunity to look at the masters of modern and contemporary design through their sketches, drawings, models, objects and furniture that they have designed and created.

Highlights of the exhibition include work by the following:

London: Owen Jones, William Morris; Vienna: Joseph Hoffmann, Adolf Loos, Otto Wagner; Dessau: Marcel Breuer, Mies van der Rohe, Herbert Bayer, Marianne Brandt; Paris: Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, Eileen Gray, Cassandre; Milan: Achille Castiglioni, Bob Noorda, Gio Ponti, Joe Columbo, Vico Magistretti, Ettore Sottsass; Los Angeles: Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, Eliot Noyes, Saul Bass, Harry Beroia; Tokyo: Sony Research, Yamaha research, Issey Miyake, Shiro Kuramata; London: Ron Arad, Jasper Morrison, Ross Lovegrove, Zaha Hadid, Jonathan Barnbrook, Sam Hecht, David Chipperfield, Peter Savile.

İstanbul Modern’s new exhibition "Design Cities" is bringing together some of the most significant design products of the last century for the first time in this country. Seeing all these design icons in one setting will no doubt be a major inspiration for anyone that has any interest in the subject.

Deyan Sudjic writes that "The Design Museum is delighted to be working with Istanbul Modern in producing a spectacular exploration of the way in which design has shaped contemporary culture."

Replenishing Body project video

February 21, 2008

Brit Insurance Designs of the year

The Replenishing Body (see below) was shortlisted in the Interactive category in 2008's Designs of the year currently running at the Design Museum. The following is taken from the exhibition program.

"The Replenishing Body Kiosk was created by Ross
Phillips, head of interactive at SHOWstudio, the online
fashion broadcasting company, founded by Nick Knight.
For this project they partnered with Evian to devise
an exhibition at a London west-end gallery, allowing
visitors to become part of ‘The Replenishing Body’. The
interactive video installation, inspired by the fact that the
human body is made up of 60% water, used a 25 section,
touch screen video grid where visitors were invited
to make a one-second video recording of a close-up
section of their body, which was added to a constantly
moving, composite video portrait. Each recording was
then added on top of previous footage so that the video
grid became a continually transformed display thanks to
the visitor’s participation."

Nominated by Dee Halligan

The Replenishing Body

An interactive video installation created in collaboration with Evian, The Replenishing Body consists of a grid of squares (5x5) which can each record a 1 second loop of film. Participants can create and orchestrate a giant composite moving creature, or simply a collage of moving snapshots by recording a close-up section of their body part. The grid starts empty at the beginning of the installation and becomes a constantly changing collorative artwork. Grids are periodically uploaded to a gallery which can be viewed on

Find out if you've got what it takes to be a modern-day spy in this new interactive family exhibition. Test your spy skills before exploring the latest spy gadgets and techniques. Go undercover on a secret mission and see if you can escape without being caught.

I worked on 3 installations for the exhibition. A brain and body scanner, and a game called escape which is the finale to the experience. I was responsible for the actual building of the scanners and the initial concept for Escape. The work was done with Joe Stephenson and Andrew Allenson for Pickledonion Productions. The exhibition is touring world wide.
