Introducing London's Original CYBER Artist
The Art of Up-Cycling Technology
TO PARAPHRASE EINSTEIN:
"Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge"
London's original CYBER Artist transforms natural found objects and hi-tech electronic components into his forward visions of artistic explorations... as if to have come from an archaeological dig into the history of the future.
Vincent works with phosphorescent colors that first appear as normal pigments. Then when viewed under UV Lights they un-expectedly dazzle the viewer with brightly fluorescent colors. Next when the lights are turned off in an viewers are often heard to delightfully gasp with an audible... "Ahhhh - they're glowing in the dark".
The Art of Up-Cycled Technology gives new life to discarded electronic products and other naturally occurring found objects from our... Throw-A-Way Culture... It's far better to give house Hold Rubbish & Hi Tech Junk a Second Life.
"It’s To Know That ... JUNK IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE !!!"
Vincent's "Futuristic Artefacts" have been exhibited as an Artist Guest of Honour (AGoH) at many SF Conventions. His visions of contemporary Up-Cycling Technology have mystified viewers at the Tate Modern Museum, and International Museums, Community Centers, Schools and Corporate Training Projects have been an important part of Vince's visions of Bridging the Gaps Between Art and Science. Vince's works have gained Local and International recognition as London's original CYBER Artist. As well a token Asteroid Broach of his work was taken into outer space by NASA's astronaut Mae Jemison in 1992 on the Shuttle Craft Endeavour. Coming down to earth Vince's unique artistic visions of shop designs have been the foundation upon which several international retail shops have established their respective for Future Forward Retail Images, including Cyber Dog, Punky Fish, @Sharper Image in Harrods, Camden's Cyber Market & many Charity Projects.
As Einstein said: "Imagination is more important than knowledge."
