Artist Mark Lecky on things and stuff and how a 2D experience can become matter in the mind.

'An attempt, by me, to try and grasp a particular experience that I have with certain things in the world. Things that appear as images or pictures, but that somehow, impose on me, a sense of their actual weight, density and volume; of their physical being in the world.’ Mark Leckey

Why Equals? at London Laser / Central Saint Martins

LASER is a series of evening gatherings that bring artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversation with an audience.

Each evening event presents guest speakers from a range of disciplines (artists, scientists, philosophers, historians, inventors, etc), plus a platform for announcements from audience members and an opportunity for discussion and socialising.

Why Equals? will discuss their collaboration and present The Y of Sky, a new project set to document the reciprocal observation between a human being on Earth and a satellite in space.
