From January 16th, Team Recoat member, Mark Lyken, will be in Residence at Recoat Gallery, creating a series of original paintings for his first solo exhibition. The show will consist of a series of new works that he describes as “Abstract Meditations on the Digital World.”
“As our interactions and communications become progressively more mediated and facilitated by technology, our connections to one another seem increasingly fragile. As we become increasingly connected through personal technology and social networks are we becoming alienated from each other and ourselves?”
First of all I’d like to say a massive thanks to Redbull and ChargeBikes for bringing the Minidrome event to Glasgow it was awesome!
I personally had a blast (even with a crippled back) and definitely drank to many Redbull’s. On top of that it was super cool to meet so many nice people including a brief chat with Andy from Fixed Mag and many other riders from all over Scotland, UK and Europe.
The racing action was good and the minidrome felt really nice to ride… although I think for me a bit more practice and a different bike setup would work better for next time… anyway I was so stoked to have raced and to have made it to the quarter finals, but when I saw on the big screen I was drawn up against the record holder and the overall winner Toms Alsberg of Latvia I felt my time was up. A sick day by all and I look forward to the next one!
