Michael Takeo Magruder - co-curator 'the cyber-kitchen' Country: USA (based in the UK)

 

Michael Takeo Magruder became co-curator of the cyber-kitchen in October 2002.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The iconic nature of mass media and global communication in our information dependent society provides the point of origin for my work. Each composition consists of digitised international media extracts which have been manipulated and transmuted into aesthetic forms void of factual content. The intention is to reflect upon the dualistic nature of media as both information source and cultural stimulant.

table

Cathy Ward and Eric Wright Country: UK

'This table has been loved, gouged, anointed and burnt by the people who╣ve sat at its sides these last 18 years in our London kitchen. Its a genuine social document to the life & times experienced by this house, and the attitudes of those who have left their mark.'

Meeting at The Banff Center, Alberta Canada in Œ89 cathy (UK) and eric (USA)have created a wide spectrum of projects & exhibitions in UK & abroad. Forthcoming collaborative installations: Mercer Union Contempoaray Arts, Toronto, Canada (October/Nov) and "Transromantik" The RBS: London (Nov/Dec).Our work is sited outside of the current commercial climate, drawing upon populist traditions and techniques and unflinchingly employing the naive imagination in order to redefine/re-examine what might constitute the romantic spirit of our age▓

Laurent Sauerwein Country: France

"As an artist, I like to explore the spaces that exist between the media. I build short sequences of digital images and bounce them between virtual networks and tangible surfaces. Among other things, I make books, real books with pages you can actually turn.

Standing at the center of our merry-go-round kitchen we watch a world of food spin by. Everything is a few feet away, just barely out of reach. My contribution here is meant to be practical. It should help you measure the distance between the salt-shaker and your plate."

Laurent Sauerwein is an artist, designer, journalist, teacher who lives and works in Paris.

S'unya Country: (based in the UK)

Organisation: the Resort

About me: Perhaps the most important thing that happened to me in my life apart from being born, was being named s'unya after the sanskrit word "s'unyata"; meaning roughly the equivalent of 'zero', in that it means nothing and infinite at the same time (this is no coincidence, as the concept of zero comes from s'unyata). This paradigm of everything existing simultaneously,and consequently becoming indistinguishable from everything else causes the effective void where no thing can be considered to exist separately from every other thing. As a result I have spent much of my life fascinated by what is 'real' and the processes by which things become 'real'.

I explore these phenomena in any medium, but with the objective, other than form and aesthetic, of the awareness of an audience/user's relationship to the art...looking to actively be involve people in the art for it to be fullycomplete. Interactive art.

Recently I have established with a core of artists a 'guild' of the arts and media called the Resort to help create work or develop ideas.

Roslyn Rose Country: --

"My mediums include assemblage, collage, photography, and digital art. In all of these mediums, the design is usually controlled by a grid motif. The subject matter is influenced by both modern and ancient myths.

My favorite myths concern women; but I have been influenced by stories of gods, humankind, and art of the past. The materials I use are found objects, slides, paper, canvas, my computer, and anything else that is available in my studio.

Today I am influenced by the specter of MOVING my home, including the kitchen. I have already donated to charity the baking pans and other miscellaneous receptacles that had been on the top shelves since we moved here. Next we jettisoned the notes, papers, tax forms, etc. that had filled another shelf. Now comes the wrapping and packing of the dishes, cups, glasses, and bowls that I am sure I cannot live without; but I am dreading the task of unpacking and deciding where to place these objects in the new kitchen.

Oops, almost forgot the pantry......to be continued, with images."

Paul Rasche Country: --
Don't know why it is some folks got that thing in their head that makes them want to make pictures, but I got it. I got it big. My art isn't about expressing my impotent rage at the plight of the human condition or a statement condemning modern governments catering to globalised multinational corporate pig-dogs, but rather creating images that are pleasing to my eye, and have no meaning beyond that. There doesn't need to be an underlying motive if the picture looks cool. Style before substance.

washed crockery

Tim Sandys-Renton Country: UK
'BREATHING ROCK' for Cyber-Kitchen: This work is a simple representation of a large rock caught in the space between being 'under' and 'above' sea level, continually washed by waves, exposed and re-covered. It seems to be a Viola-like metaphor for that point between life and death, between breathing and not breathing. The rhythm and sound is vital as a reminder that this state may last indefinitely. It is not the end but the middle; there is no choice. Hence its' inclusion in the kitchen, an occasional place of introspection over a bowl of 'corn flakes' or a cup of coffee, a place where life is subject to repetition, intense volume, manic swings between order and chaos, tranquillity, boredom and violence. For many of us this banal 'domestic' existence is something that washes over us like waves, occasionally threatening to engulf us completely.

Helen Tranckle Country: UK
I have recently completed a BA(hons) Fine Art at Surrey Institute of Art and Design and currently my work focuses on the experience of the viewer through objects and installation. Place, atmosphere and object are evident of our existence and expressing these as interactive works, where experience becomes the powerful element, goes some way to the inclusion of the viewer rather than their all too often exclusion.
