h-t-t-p.xyz

A mixed media response to "Neo-Curationism"; the hypothetical art movement exploring identity and creative expression on the internet.

"h-t-t-p.xyz" took place in a gallery space from 29/04/19 until 06/05/19, and was created from images taken from my personal blog. It was entirely realised from my bedroom using only a home printer. The wall space also featured smaller collages, as well as a video feed of the earlier iterations of the project. The final video is in part a performance piece, as users document the space with their mobile phones.

Reservoir Records

An investigation into the ways in which a creative business can gain cult-like status within the fashion industry through tactical merchandising and collaboration.

While simulating a collaboration between myself as an artist and Reservoir Records as a company, I produced three all over print long sleeve t-shirts to the same artistic standards I'd restricted myself to in my latest project: h-t-t-p.xyz (see previous works). I also produced a collection of promotional materials, including a collaboration with Virgil Hawkins.
