The Vinyl Factory announces the opening of a new gallery space in the heart of Chelsea, located on Walton Street. The gallery will launch in collaboration with “Daydreaming with…” to present the first solo show by acclaimed photographers and “painters with light” Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones.
Running from September 15 to October 9, 2011, the show will feature a series of new works, including two stunning goldfoiled large format prints and a limited edition vinyl and art release from long-term creative collaborator and UNKLE founder James Lavelle.
With cybernetics, prosthetics, robotics, nanotechnology and neuroscience altering the way we perceive and experience space, the body has re-emerged as an important architectural site, revealing it’s astonishing potential as a creative medium. See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception captures the fascinating relationship between design, the body, the senses, and technology.
Written by New York City filmmaker and architect, Madeline Schwartzman, the book examines work from the last 50 years by artists, architects and designers who have been experimenting with the boundaries of our senses, changing the way we experience the world.
It presents the work of key innovators in this field from Haus-Rucker-Co.’s mind-bending headgear to Rebecca Horn’s mythical wearable structures, Stelarc’s robotic body extensions and Carsten Höller’s neurally interactive installations, as well as the work of artists who have emerged in the last five years, like Internet sensation Daito Manabe, Hyungkoo Lee and Michael Burton.
