A new public art project Breath is Invisible launches today

A new public art project, Breath is Invisible (7 July – 9 Oct 2020), launches today in Notting Hill with an installation of works by Khadija Saye, the young Gambian-British artist who tragically lost her life in the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017, aged just 24. Saye’s is the first of three site-specific exhibitions that comprise the project; Martyn Ware, Zachary Eastwood-Bloom and Joy Gregory will present new commissions created in partnership with the local community.

INTERVIEW: Zachary Eastwood-Bloom – an artist who explores the blurring space between the real and digital worlds.

About 6 or 7 years ago I became fascinated by how digital culture was increasingly invading the material world. At its most basic it presented a polemic between ‘the real and the material’ and something ‘real but immaterial’, over the years since, these opposite ends of the scale have moved closer and closer creating a blurring space. My work aims to explore that blurring space. I tend to use traditional and natural materials like clay, wood or metal and affect them digitally or cast from a digitally manufactured source.
