It’s nice to see the peeps at the Ikon making more use of audio and video on their website.Â The latest offering is a video documentary on the installation process and work of Shahzia Sikander whose exhibition, ‘Intimate Ambivalence‘ will be at the Ikon Gallery until 14 September.
Like I say, it’s good to see this sort of thing but personally I’d like to see a little more (demanding sod that I am).Â In case anyone from the gallery is reading, here’s a cheeky wishlist:
- Videos to be uploaded somewhere like Vimeo or YouTube so they can be embedded on other sites (like this one).Â It’s free and I guarantee you’d get more viewers.
- A media section with all your audio/video in one place – I found searching for past items (like the ‘In Conversation’ recordings) far too tricky.
- Actually is anything happening with the ‘These Are A Few Of My Favourtite Things’ audio?Â I was at Ian Francis (7 Inch Cinema)’s talk and saw it being recorded.Â Why not use these sorts of things to make a podcast that people could subscribe to?
