Mike Eden made his name with Eden Pottery which he co-founded with his wife Vicky. A few years ago he studied at the Royal College of Art and his ceramics evolved in a new direction, following his aim of combining traditional ceramic hand craft skills with digital technology. His current work uses QR(Quick Response) codes to trigger a virtual experience of the object, and he is about to produce collaborative work with a musician. Expect a friendly, down to earth presentation which explores some of the potential of digital technology for ceramics.
The theme of my current work is around the ‘liberation’ of the object through simultaneous actual and virtual experiences.
