In the world of Burning Man what should a museum represent? How should it entice the audience into experience the art, and how different will it be from other museums?
One project that will answer some of these questions is the Museum of No Spectators. It started as a virtual project, and will be one of a few pieces from the virtual burn that will be built for Burning Man 2022.
We chat with Absinthia, co-lead of the project to find out how the experience will offer participants a chance to take centre stage at the museum.
In WAFDust podcast #22 we chat with multi-disciplinary artist Luke Jerram, about “New Beginnings”, the latest addition to our exhibition at Ashton Court in Bristol.
New Beginnings is the first in a series of coin sculptures to be made by Luke which are animated and completed by members of the public. Some sculptures will be temporary, whilst others, will be permanent, creating a slowly changing landmark in the landscape, a destination and focus for public discussion.
The giant wooden seed sculpture is proving to be very popular, as members of the public are invited to make a wish, as they hammer coins into the piece.
This Ashton Court exhibition is a partnership with ArtSpace LifeSpace in Bristol.
