Welcome back Tech Team fans!
Today’s blog post will be about the second Big Bang at Wolverhampton Art Gallery. To find out about the first Big Bang (exhibition) click here and to look behind the scenes of the first Big Bang click here.
So now if you followed those links this may all make a bit more sense if not click here.
So with all of that out the way, here’s the peak behind the scenes you all really wanted anyway:
This is a beneath the scenes photograph. Sadly we had to dispose of one of our large showcases because it had become unsafe and unfixable. This is a picture I took whilst lying on the floor underneath it, part way through taking it apart. I thought it was interesting and also no-one else has seen that so you are now part of the privileged few…
Finally here are some pictures which I really do think are interesting (I may still be the only one) and you actually can’t see by coming into the exhibition. These photographs are close ups of the works in the exhibition with other works reflected in them (they are pop art-like collages of pop art). The reason why you can’t see them for yourself is that I took the pictures with the florescent working lights on that are much brighter than the exhibition lights. When you first enter the exhibition it seems quite dark, this is because most of the works are on paper and this makes them more sensitive to fading in the light, therefore we have to light them at quite a low level in order to preserve the work as best as possible for future generations.
There isn’t a prize for coming into the gallery to workout which works you can see in each photo but there may well be hours of fun for all the family right there…
