The Location You @ Now is a group show in Beijing, China “based around a theme of physical and displaced presence through scavenged, recovered and reclaimed media. The works of these emerging artists incorporate easily acquired consumer grade technology and embrace a Do-It-Yourself (D.I.Y.) aesthetic. Found amidst the wave of celebration for high technology and the increasingly global mediascape, these works represent an alternative stream of innovation in the gray area where art and science intersect. ” A nice mix of work, especially Kan Xuan’s robotic garbage can (pictured) which sings and dances. Other projects include Rania Ho‘s interactive sculpture made from forgotten toys of the 70’s (go Rania!), and Angie Waller’s hairy 3D animations. Good to see more DIY type shows happening and I wonder if the garbage can is anything like Oscar the Grouch?
