Ahead of Art 16 we caught up with a few of the exhibiting galleries
New Photo exhibition opens in Soho
Graham Fink (at Riflemaker to 21 March) is a pareidolian: he sees faces all over the place. That’s picked up in witty photographs which land somewhere between gestalt and abstraction by discovering visages in peeling walls, clouds and rock formations etc. True, I’ve seen that done before, but the surprising variety and specificity which Fink discovers gives his images an extra dimension. He displays a selection of these on monumentalising slabs of marble.
Tobii sent me a coder and I spent 3 months with him designing this technology, working out exactly what I wanted. I wanted it set to the sensitivity of my eye because I wanted to draw a completely free line, and this is one continuous line. After a lot of experiments I think he cracked it.
