Jon Burgerman show at Concrete Hermit

If you thought the doodling of illustrator Jon Burgerman was just confined to two dimensions, then think again. His first series of multi-coloured sculptural pieces can be seen in a new exhibition at the Concrete Hermit Gallery in London. Pop Idle opened last week and follows on from Burgerman’s shows at the ROJO Artspaces in Barcelona and Milan.

Corbis Readymech cameras

Peyote pinhole camera
For those of you who are fans of both old-fashioned camera techniques and origami, Corbis have created a website that might have just the thing for you.
The website has a number of camera designs that can be downloaded as pdfs and then printed off, with full instructions how to turn them into the workable pinhole cameras. Here is a selection of the designs, which were created by Fwis design studio especially for Corbis – we think they’re rather nice. Visit corbis.com/readycam to join in the fun.

A good idea but…

Desktop Dan

The Girl with a Pearl Earring Censored, 2005 by Dan Proops
Artist Dan Proops is set to showcase a series of paintings at the Empire Gallery in London from May 1st until 13th. If the surname rings a bell, it might be because he’s the grandson of agony aunt Marjorie Proops, but, as an artist, Proops has gradually been making a name for himself. After featuring in over 25 shows since the age of 14 (exhibiting at some of London’s most prestigious institutions, such as the Cooling Gallery in Cork Street and the Serpentine Gallery) Proops has been attracting acclaim, in part through his painterly reconstructions of computer desktops.
