As an artist you should always think about the way you make people look at your work. I personally love it when art achieves to entertain you, puts a smile on your face or a frown, makes you think and generally just opens your eyes to discover a whole new world.
A few weeks ago I stumbled into the "Eyecandy '09" exhibition held in a gallery space in the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane. And when I saw Lisa Swerling's Glass Cathedral boxes I thought she must feel exactly the same way.
She created mini-mini puppets which she displayed behind or on top of glass boxes. I really loved the way you had to get really close to see these miniture people which where smaller than your fingertips. The combination of this near-microscopic endeavouring and her funny sometimes thought-provoking messages made me feel like I was a scientist with a magnifying glass walking through an undiscovered land.
Surely something I will remember for a very long time.
