Seizure: art in London

I have a problem with my computer, which is a Hewlett-Packard POS. That’s a technical term for computers which have power connectors that break down easily, and which (because they break down easily) are not covered under the 1-year warranty because Hewlett-Packard argues that since they made the power connection so fragile that ordinary use can easily break it, any damage to the power connection is assumed by Hewlett-Packard to be the fault of the user, not the manufacturer. In summary, though I bought this laptop less than 18 months ago, I need to buy a new one. And I think it will probably cost me less if I leave it till after Christmas. As I can’t really afford a new laptop at all, that’s probably a good idea. But as it’s 16th December today, even though I have a couple of photos saved to post ahead, I’m going to have to share a dozen photos with you of a work of art in London. Think of it as a test pattern. Without the annoying whine. Well, I guess this is an annoying whine. Sorry.

“Seizure continued Artangel’s long tradition of transforming urban housing into large-scale immersive works of art.”

“For his first work within an urban site, Roger Hiorns made a radical shift of scale and context, and developed an extraordinary chemical intervention in the heart of the city.”
