Art Detection Services Ltd on Lost in the Wood !

Two long weeks ago , art detector and lover of Busta Rhymes, Matt Moore, came down to the studio to BRING DA HYPE regarding his uber successful 'Good Art Gallery' which is now open in the Created in Birmingham Shop. Those art detector tubes of his containing the magic fluid really do work !! The day after the show I brought in a crumpled knapkin with added doodles and, despite popular opinion, it was certified as definitely NOT art.
Look how happy he is with his stack of cookies YEAH :

Listen back to the whole show here (there wasnt actually a show on the 24th April as I was away last weekend, so if you click on that you may end up with The Feeling or something similarly shitawful)

AAAAAAAAAnnd , todays show is on.. today! at 5 - 7pm ! - with the usual mix of amazing music and talking bolllox.


Those lovely fizzPOP folks will be in residence at The Lombard Method artist studios in Digbeth, Birmingham between the 1st and the 16th of May.

To kick things off with a blast of awesomeness today between 12 - 6pm , they are attempting to build an IMPROBABLE MACHINE in the style of William Heath Robinson. Or, if you like your cultural references slightly more contemporary, in the style of Fischli and Weiss’ Der Lauf der Dinge (The Way Things Go), the Honda Cog advert or that video from OK GO (which I'm not going put up because that band really piss me off as they get mounds of cash thrown at them to make vaguely interesting music videos, and subsequently they get all this attention for their "wacky" promos but, actually, they're just a bit shit). Basically, it'll be like an enormous game of mouse trap.

entry is free, but they really need you to bring some random stuff to help make the contraption truly great. Here are some suggestions, but we’re sure you can find some good stuff if you rootle around in the garage or poke around in some skips as you walk through Digbeth on your way in!
  • cardboard, lots and lots of cardboard!
  • tubes and drainpipes
  • umbrellas
  • strings
  • springs
  • magnets
  • buckets
  • wheels
  • marbles
  • golf balls
  • footballs
  • balloons
  • plastic sheeting or tapaulin
  • lego
  • any other toys or tracks
  • miscellaneous items and fancy goods
(personally, I would never part with my dear lego , but hey, sup to you !) see you there !
