Cornerhouse Sketch-O-Matic

I am really excited to be taking part in the Cornerhouse  sketch-o-matic event starting later this week.
I'll be hidden in a booth doing  5 min portraits for an hour on Sat 25th Nov and an hour on Mon 28th Nov, taking turns with other artists. Come and get your portrait if you dare!

Sketch-O-Matic photobooth



Café / Bar
Thu 24 Nov 2011 – Sun 4 Dec 2011
Open daily, including evenings - see booth for timings
£1 donation per sitter to artist
In an age of buy to invest instead of buy what you like, the making of art has been torn from human hands as mass-multiple prints flood the high street, while the buying of art is seen as rarefied and reserved for a wealthy few. Sketch-O-Matic is a full size photo booth situated in our busy café-bar, but where the machinery should be is a tiny, fully equipped artist’s studio. You, the public, are invited to sit inside as if for a photograph and make a donation to the artist through a slot for a self- portrait. Wait five minutes (give or take) and the image will appear. It may be a pencil drawing, doodle, cartoon, collage or even word-poem. Take it, frame it, consider it. Now you are both patron and muse!
