Liquid Crystal Display, David Blackmore

Liquid Crystal Display, David Blackmore

Over the past year David has been working on a number of works including his archive of 100 lucky pennies, a walk from Mizen to Malin Head without passing a pub, Cracked LCDs, Liquid Crystal Displays and a private commission in Dublin.

In ‘Liquid Crystal Displays’ Blackmore has been working with broken Liquid Crystal Display Screens from the latest digital devices such as lap tops, phones and cameras; technologies that play a large part in our modern daily routines. These digital forms have almost completely replaced analogue technology in industry and are fast replacing analogue forms in photographic art. This body of work has been exhibited as an installation of the illuminated screens themselves during the Pixxelpoint New Media Art Festival. Along side this David has been making photographic prints of the screens using solely analogue photographic equipment and processes, Blackmore’s work catalogues and questions the place of obsolete technology in art and contemporary life.
These works were also exhibited at Constanza Isaza Martinez’ exhibition “Material Light”.

Aside from his own artistic practice Blackmore is a part time lecturer at the University for the Creative Arts. David has also guest lectured at a number of institutions including the University of Westminster and the Institute for Art, Design and Technology, Dublin.
