Michael Pinsky UK
Michael explores relationships between architectural spaces and perceptions
of time. Taking the combined roles of urban planner, activist, researcher,
resident and artist, he uses diverse media such as video, performance,
mapping systems and sculpture to explore geopolitical aspects of a site.
Through the displacement and conflation of existing objects and activities
he critiques the impact of society’s behaviour.
