The wooden cube is now complete, ready to fill with my 3D artwork for the opening on Monday 15th February at the Boxxed venue (104-105 Floodgate Street, Birmingham B5 5SR).

My good friend Rich Holland ably assisted my design and lent his own skills to the construction. Rich also built the first cubic experiment last year for the 51 Degrees show. This time round we used wood of a higher quality and made a few invisible and radical changes to the timber. The whole unit can now be packed away and transported to other locations in smaller parts.

The cube would not have been possible if it weren’t for the help from Rich and Liam (who worked on Mutate Britain in London). They are two of the hardest working individuals I have ever had the joy to work with.

Keep ’em peeled over the next few days for the 3D interior footage…

Dazed and Tiger are ready to celebrate Chinese New Year in London’s Chinatown next Thursday with Dazed’s series of specially curated film, art, music and photography events. These represents three of the Tiger Lucky 8 events with an additional five events taking place all around the UK. Representing the elements of the Chinese zodiac; Earth, Wood, Metal, Water and Fire, the events have been curated by Josef Valentino, the brains behind the Worthless pop-up exhibition. When Tiger Beer invited me to curate ‘The Tiger Lucky 8’ I was adamant to work with a collection of talent who would revolutionize the way people interacted with Chinese New Year. The end result is a series of diverse and engaging exhibitions that respond intuitively towards the five elements of the Zodiac, whilst also demonstrating a rich breed of talent from across the UK explains Valentino.
