Basim Magdy – One Eye Was A Diamond, The Other Was A Crystal Ball. Everyone Saw The Future In Her Eye - 2019

Basim Magdy – One Eye Was A Diamond, The Other Was A Crystal Ball. Everyone Saw The Future In Her Eye - 2019Basim Magdy’s work encompasses photography, video, sculpture and installation. This is one of a number of photographs that came out of a sudden interest in human eyes and how much they communicate about our personalities and emotions. The roll of film the image was shot on was pickled in acidic household chemicals for a calculated period of time, resulting in a dominant blue colour. Magdy was commissioned to transform Art Block, the SLG’s free space for local children to make things, be creative and play. His installation PINGPINPOOLPONG, or How I Learned to Laugh at Failure, 2018 was a table-based game that aimed to challenge the idea of winning and encourage participants to celebrate failing together.
