Then i travelled to Venice and at the airport just after passport checks there was an interesting advert on the floor which produced butterflies on whatever area you stepped on, i have some photos on my phone and if i can get a card-reader any time soon i’ll put one on!
I managed to spend one day looking around the Biennale which was absolutely brilliant but one day was definitely not nearly enough time to see and appreciate everything!
First I went to the Arsenale where my favorites were Lygia Pape’s Golden threds, Aleksandra Mir, Yona Friedman, Cildo Meireles, Jorge Otero-Pailos, Anawana Haloba, Chu Yun, Keren Cytter…
I have been away for about five weeks at Glastonbury and in italy, i have just returned home, these are a few things i encountered during my travels!
At Glastonbury we were in an area called trash city and we came across two guys wearing these suits:
the suits were brilliant, you use the spoon you can see to press different parts of the suit (either the legs,chest, arms etc) and as you press that area a sample of a song or a sound is played (maybe what the person before you recorded i wasn’t quite sure). and if you wanted you could record yourself making a sound into the microphone he’s holding and then they would make one area (e.g their arm) make that sound when you pressed there with the spoon. This was great as we could make lots of mixes of sounds etc with two people and the spoons!
