About the work

This drawing was part of a series of studies for a 3D animated film Even Darker Matter which was part of my exhibition The Structure of Feeling at Block 336 in London from September-December 2020. The exhibition was a cartoon-like theme park with electric powered carts that transported visitors around an illuminated track. At various points on the track videos would play including Even Darker Matter, which required 3D glasses. In this film animated eyeballs drift through the edge of the cosmos colliding with star clusters made from old cartoon clips. This film was synched with the lighting rig so each time an eye appeared to pass through the screen the lights would flicker. The show was exploring what comes after the cartoon landscape by exploring its outer edges.

Oh Through What

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
