Paul Raftery, architectural photographer, and Dan Lowe, director, have collaborated to create a timelapse film showing the final weeks of construction of The Shard tower in London Bridge, the tallest skyscraper in the United Kingdom.

It was shot over many long days during the early months of 2012, from locations spanning from Greenwich Park to Hampstead Heath.

Giles Walker ‘The Last Supper’ in Pictures

Posted in Art, Artists, Film & Video, Photography, Shows, Events & Venues with tags , , , , on April 11, 2012 by wallkandy

After my first visit to see Giles Walker’s ‘The Last Supper’ I revisited with my camera to try and capture the atmosphere of the installation and space. 

Words from the press release:

Giles Walker‘s extraordinary Last Supper. A fully animated sculpture consisting of thirteen mechanical figures who interact around a table.
A year in the making, this remarkable work is simultaneously humorous and frightening. The Last Supper surpasses the audience’s initial interest in the robotic elements of the piece and draws us into the questions it poses and the all too human aspects it addresses. It promises to leave a lasting impression on those who have the opportunity to experience it.

Insa – ‘Self Reflection is greater than Self Projection’

Posted in Art, Artists, Photography, Shows, Events & Venues with tags , , , , on March 29, 2012 by wallkandy

A new installation to be presented by INSA and open for one evening only.  I had the pleasure of being invited along to take a few snaps a few days before the opening.  The following words are from The London and Newcastle site

INSA’s latest installation work is his most obviously paradoxical to date. Having built the INSA brand reiterating issues of the female body and commodity fetishism, here, amongst a swirling cacophony of bikini clad women and chrome the audience is assured that ‘Self Reflection is greater than Self Projection’.

For the last few months I’ve followed Conor Harrington as he has been preparing for his recently opened solo show ‘Dead Meat’ at Lazarides Rathbone gallery.  I love watching the painting process so being able to watch this show come together has been a true feast for the eyes.

Kidult T-shirt Give Away at Hermès London Ends in a Riot Van

Posted in Art, News, Photography with tags , , , on January 7, 2012 by wallkandy

Kidult & crew were in London today to hand out free T-shirts to those people who had turned up to the rendezvous point outside Hermes on New Bond Street.  A group of 30+ people had already assembled in anticipation & this appeared to have alerted the store to the fact that something was going on.

Within what seemed like seconds of Kidult arriving the police appeared and quickly brought the sharing to an abrupt end whilst uttering the words ‘You are suspected of having stolen goods’.
