Dinky Doors Save the World

PRESENTED ON MAR 20, 2019
IN CAMBRIDGE @ VOL 19

Dinky Doors is a street art initiative from guerilla artists in Cambridge, UK. They unexpectedly found themselves on an unexpected mission to *SAVE THE WORLD*. Unexpectedly.

They're an antidote to the seemingly endless terrible news that we’re inundated with on a daily basis. To deliver wonder as you wander through the medium of… er… dinky little doors.

In this presentation you will discover how dinky things deliver unexpected dollops of delight that can defend against the daily onslaught of miserable miserableness. And together we can *SAVE THE WORLD*.

Installation - When Are You?

BY YANG YANG LEE + JACQUELINE BRITTO + OLIVER KELLOW JOY ARTISTS COLLECTIVE
@ VOL 24 ON MAY 16, 2019

Oliver Kellow + Lee Yang Yang speaking about there art installation built with Jacqui Britto as the Joy Artists Collective.

When Are You? is a fusion of the concrete and the ephemeral. Spatial elements consisting of opaque and mirrored panels suspended in serial progression. This arrangement affords fleeting glimpses of the destination, drawing the participant through the work.  As the final destination is approached it becomes clear that the flat image glimpsed at the outset is actually a parallax-distorted digital mirror. Projected on two angled screens, the image becomes warped and stretched as the viewer advances. Constantly dislocating from the regular passage of time, this fluctuating mirror asks the participant to reflect on their experience as the distorted reflection stares back at them.
