I went to see Rob Ryan’s paper cut art works yesterday. (via @NoriFla Thanks!)
I really liked his fine, crisp but simple work, which has lovely “stories” inside. Sometimes the story is sentimental, sometimes happy, I will never get bored looking at these art. It might be interesting if it becomes animation…like moving pictures.
They gave me an invitation card too. Amazing!
Unfortunately yesterday was the last day for the exhibition, but seems he has a shop in Shoreditch. Go see it if you are interested in. I’m gonna visit there too!

I went to see “decode” exhibition at V&A. It’s about digital art, and the main theme is visualization by codes, network and interactivity.

Lots of different data were used to visualize, but I liked the one with Twitter, Social Collider. Visual design was good too.
I also liked Body Paint which really simulates “painting” using body with its texture. And the one called Light Rain has a very fine graphics. It’s done by Japanese group. Yey! 😛 Venetian Mirror shows your picture little by little, so that you would feel like you have become a ghost!
Writing codes and preparing physical interactivity must be already difficult, but the more difficult point might be how to present them and how to evoke emotions from audience. I really admire these digital artists! Also I was so amazed how these digital “codes” move as if they are organic.
By the way, they are showing the pieces by Aaron Koblin whom I wrote about before too.
The decode is open until 11th April at V&A. Timeout is giving a voucher until the end of Jan too.
