Simon Patterson at the Fruitmarket

You'll have seen one artwork by Simon Patterson: "The Great Bear" is the London subway map with the names of stations replaced by philosophers, actors, explorers, Italian painters, and the like. All of his artwork involves similar transpositions from one form of representation to another -- perfect for computer scientists! I particularly enjoyed his short films High Noon (heavy-breathing timepieces) and Escape Routine (airplane instructions intersperesed with Houdini). He's on at the Fruitmarket in Edinburgh until 1 May.
