We live in a world where there is more and more information and less and less meaning

Today I will be continuing my residency in Jessop West foyer.

Bryan Eccleshall will be with me making additions to his Digital Rain collages live in the foyer. 
I will be interrupting him by adding diagrammatic thoughts into the images he makes and passing the images back and forth 

Please come along and interrupt as the conversations will no doubt influence the work that gets made

Bryan Eccleshall is an artist who works across disciplines. The works that make up Digital Rain draw on art history, current affairs, classical myth, and religion but also reflect his interest in 1970s dystopian science fiction and pop culture. Images are taken indiscriminately from the internet and collided with one another and with photographs of Eccleshall’s own work. The project began as an exploration of the issues surrounding Europe's so-called refugee crisis, but it has expanded to encompass many other subjects. The resulting work is complex and baffling, not least to its maker. The works might be thought of as latter-day conversation pieces. The collection currently contains over six hundred images. The work was recently exhibited at the Green Rooms Hotel in London.
