well, Saturday (Sat 1st April) is the start of a mini exhibition of mine and a few other peoples.

The show is in the Victoria Baths in Manchester (which is a fabulous place, that should be visited before its restoration anyway!).

Its on Saturday 5-8pm
Sunday 12-4pm
Then Mon-Thur 5-8pm

To be honest I dont know all that much about the other artists work, but this website ( Interval )should be updated soon with more info.

What of mine is going to be there? Well, what I reckon will be the final incantation of unrealArt, which I have decided to call "A little Unreal".
Its the same idea as the original UnrealArt except the installation will not show Unreal Tournament (the game) being played, you'll simply hear it (quietly). The main focus will be the slow but steady portraits draw from the gameplay.

As I dont intend to continue on with the UnrealArt project after this, Im thinking of making all my UnrealArt prints available to buy online, just for a print onto semi-gloss paper, as lots of people seem to want a copy. So hopefully that system will be up and running after the show.

p.s. this last picture is to remind you that the pictures dont come out ready made... the very slowly reveal themselves.

I sure most people have seen this already being that its quite popular, but I thought Id put it here for my own reference.

I like it... its creates quite beautiful images based on whatever you want.

I enjoy work like this because it raises questions about art/computers/generation/interaction and the like. Even more so than my work it makes people say things like - "its nice... its not art though is it."
Who knows, Im certainly not into labeling anything, according to the text its a "generative drawing machine" so lets leave it at that.

I could probably (and so could everyone else) talk about what I would class as art untill the cows come home. But im not going to.
I like this work very much, and thats the end of it.
