SONYA GEE AND ANDREW HAINING
Each week for just over a year, Sonya Gee has been packing tiny presents into matchboxes and strategically abandoning them all over the city, as small presents for strangers. From baby babushka dolls, miniature harmonicas and thumb-sized bowling sets, this work is a visual summary of gifts left and of its cult blog.
Sonya is a writer, multimedia journalist and local historian interested in documenting things that get lost in the crowd.
ANDREW HAINING creates a kaleidescope of video. Through his work an infinity of space is bent and reflected for the viewer so that the two-dimensional medium of video can be viewed from infinite points at once.
