Daniel Eatock Talking In Circles
September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Begin with Ideas. Embrace Change. Celebrate Confidence. Ad-lib and Make Things Up.
From Daniel Eatock’s Manifesto
Spend an hour with witty artist and disrupter Daniel Eatock at a Current Perspectives presentation, Talking in Circles, where he’ll narrate insights to 360 images arranged around the circumference of a circle starting and ending at the top. Eatock’s fascination with the circle is evident in much of his work. His practice not only rounds the circle, but reinvents and questions the very premise of what a circle might be.
With over 20 bios on his website eatock.com, it’s hard to choose just one to describe Eatock and his art. This one by Tim Milne, for the British website Container, sums it up – Daniel Eatock is renowned for his exploration of the wit and conceptual irony that exist in everyday objects and situations. He devises systems, templates and opportunities for collaboration inviting contributors to shape the outcome and participate in the creation of his work. He embraces contradictions and dilemmas; seeking out alignments, paradoxes, chance circumstance, loops, impossibilities, and oxymorons. He likes to create the feeling of falling backward. Daniel trained at The Royal College of Art as a graphic designer, but is now an established artist exhibiting around the world with a devoted following.
