Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? @ The Substation (Exhibits thru Dec 1st)

Plain and simple, Ridley Scott's BLADE RUNNER [wiki] had changed my sci-fi worldview since I first laid my innocent peepers on it (and influenced me thereafter til this very exact moment, and I suspect even beyond), and to find out about the Bladerunner-themed ▲ Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? ▲ artshow at The Substation, was an absolute thrill for me personally, and I reckon quite a stroke of brill, IMHO! (I know I'm not an artist but how the heck can I get on the show, darnnit?)
ELECTRIC-SHEEP

This show brings together 20 artists from a range of disciplines including product design, interactive media, graphic design, photography and illustration. Curated by Steve Lawler aka Mojoko, the show exhibits thru December 1st, 2009. Most of the artwork are available for purchase. After the show ends, there are tentative plans to move remaining exhibits to The Loft @ Haji Lane (TBC) and if you are interested in purchasing any of the artwork shown, email Steve at steve@kult.com.sg for inquiries.

Do yourselves a favor and drop by the exhibition, gawk and take a walk down those wet rainy neon-lit memory-streets, and purchase some art. But if you cannot make it to the show, CLICK THRU to peep slideshowed-snaps & quickie-videos :)

A deceptively stark display gallery which belies the solitary mood of the classic epic (or rather the loneliness of Deckard, IMHO) heightened by the color-tinged lit fluorescent tubes at corners, and predominately at Mystic Vintage fashion-skeleton installation (peep slideshow at bottom of post), lends a slight cackle of electricity in the air, well, as the very least my own anticipation for the show (and of course, lurve for the Ridley Scott-classic).

I would hazard to say having the movie soundtrack by Vangelis subtly pumped out would be fab (but yes, perhaps a tad overkill) ~ but instead a television playing the movie DVD at the window area at the far end of the gallery works effectively in conjuring up the mood for sum Replicant-lurve (and there will never be a Replicant-Rachael like Sean Young). Now, enough of my cyber-twaddling, onwards for the artwork and installations on display!
