"Y’Barbo works with technical, technological, evidently computer-generated imagery, speaking of the way we try to quantify and even commodify our lives. But he doesn’t argue against the computer's lack of humanity so much as he tries to humanize it, to bring it down – or up – to our scale.”

Kupambana / Chelsea College Exhibition: Cookhouse

Hello All,

This month has seen two projects that i've been working on over the past 6 months come together. 

The first is 'Communicating Values' a Chelsea College of Art & Design / Kupambana Art Foundation Collaboration. The project aimed to create an exchange of dialogue between Lewis PR employees and students and alumni at Chelsea College. The culmina



First thing I have to say about this project is that I regret not giving the title more thought. It came out of back and forth emails as well as questions of value and value structures that had arisen within my research at the time of the start of this project. I think a more appropriate title would be 'Limits of Language' or maybe 'Do We Know More Together?' 

Anyhow, the 6 month project ended with what I thought to be a successful exhibition that showed what we'd been doing in our discussions with one another and also art practice based responses within groups.










The second project that i've been working on over the past 6 months was 'Not Knowing: APG / CCW / Chelsea Salon'.




I've post more details about this project here:
