The Father of Pop has died, aged 89

Hamilton passed away on Sept 13th before putting the final touches on a traveling retrospective that was due to tour major locations during 2013-14. Hamilton is recognized as the founding figure of the pop art movement in Britain ahead of it’s later rise to prominence in the US.

Big Bambu

Named so after the infamous Cheech and Chong Album, this extraordinary two year undertaking by the Starn brothers has to be seen to be believed. Using (currently 2000) bamboo poles the artists and their team of assistants have assembled a continuously morphing structure that moves, envelopes and evolves along the length of their enormous studio. The entire process which involves de constructing the trailing edge and reconstructing the leading edge, is documented, and the resulting photographic montage will show an image of a construction that never existed in its exhibited state.
