Artist and creative Graham Fink has collaborated with Shanghai fashion designer Ziggy Chen on the new collection’s visual identity that references dualities within people and place. Celebrating the nuances of individuality and community, the project will be on display at Rankin’s Annroy Gallery
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.
Graham will be ‘drawing’ live, using neither hand nor any instrument, other than his eyes.
