Art is powerful. It’s a way for us to express our thoughts and ideas, but it can also convey pop culture in an interesting, yet powerful way. Take Russian artists Alexei Shulgin and Aristarkh Chernyshev for an example. They’re the ones behind the “Creative Consumption” exhibit which is currently on display at London’s Science Museum. One of the pieces features a spiralling iPhone, a fancy iPod, and a dog “using” an iPad. All in all, they’re eye candy.
The exhibit’s description says:[quote]Encouraging participation through ‘Creative Consumption’, the artists generate a dialogue with their audiences through works which respond, reflect and re-version viewers in real time. The artworks use languages of pop culture, media and art histories, framed by a tongue-in-cheek appropriation of the language of corporate marketing speak.[/quote]
The exhibits on display focus on devices we use in our daily lives that are morphed into Electroboutique – an interactive sculpture gallery currently on show at the South Kensington based museum.
Debuted in November, this exhibit runs through Valentine’s Day, February 14. The price: free. So if you have a special someone who’s into Apple gadgets, take them to the exhibit. Well, that’s if you’ll be in London, naturally.
