slurp-show:

This new interactive installation was created specifically for the ice well under the London Canal Museum by artist Nye Thompson.
The installation imagines that some strange technological relics have been uncovered from the rubble filling up the old ice wells. The relics appear to be some kind of model or map. They have been put on display in the museum, but as we look at them, are they looking back at us? And if so, for what purpose?
This exhibition explores our relationship with the seductive technologies that increasingly mediate or even construct our interactions with the world. As we put more and more of our lives and our private selves into the virtual arena, what does this mean in a time of government ‘data slurps’ and increased surveillance of our online activities “in the interest of national security”.
The installation was created using electronic waste - parts of redundant computing equipment and also uses DIY computing platform Raspberry Pi.

2014 paper series no.2
Mixed media on paper. Assemblage with light drawing photograph and e-waste. Dimensions  560mm x 760mm
This piece started as a “drawing” using my PC screws collection. I actually screwed the screws through the paper so that the ends would create a kind of irregular matrix. It was quite a difficult process, and the paper split in several places, creating a kind of violent bursting through.
