Interview with Sriwhana Spong Sriwhana Spong explores the way art can draw upon fragments from history to re-imagine a past event or performance. In her digital video work Costume for a Mourner (2010) she re-interprets a dance from an historic Ballets Russes performance. This work featured in the exhibition Collecting Contemporary, June 2011 - January 2012.
I was sent to the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City as part of an evidence response team. We had the night shift, so had some time to see the sights and events during the day. This was the Men's Biathalon. By the way this is not using a telephoto lens... we were able to get very close to the track.
Picasso drawing used in graphene art-Artist Cornelia Parker has teamed up with a Nobel Prize-winning scientist to turn fragments of drawings by Picasso, Constable and Turner into a new artwork for Manchester's Whitworth gallery. Konstantin Novoselov, who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010, took tiny samples of pencil graphite from the drawings and turned them into graphene. Parker will use the graphene in the venue's reopening events in October.
