We don't often have art in the festival foyer, but we do enjoy the weird 3D work of Richard Counsell.
His stuff really does jump out at you, so we jumped at the chance to have a little of it on show.

A moment together at the new and exciting venue "the..." Camden Cyber Market "......Based in London, Vincent is Camden’s original CYBER Artist. His unique creative works are an oxymoron described as; ‘Contemporary Futuristic Artefacts’.
Having influenced a generation of forward thinking artists his ecologically friendly philosophy has been shared through ‘Recycling Technology Work Shops’ for Museums, Corporate Think Tanks, Community Special needs Organizations and used to support world wide, fund raising charity events.
His works have laid the foundations for the marketing presentations of Corporate giants; such as Sony, Nike, the Gadget Shop at Harrods, Camden’s Punky Fish Clothing Outlets and Camden’s Cyber Dog's visual retail presentation that have become globally recognized as forward thinking out of the box retailers.
Vincent who is inspired by all things futuristic, had the unique honour of having one of his pieces taken up with the Endeavour space mission in 1992 - astronaut Mae Jemison was a fan and took the work up as a keepsake.
Gustavo Sorola one of the principal founding members of the renowned Rooster Teeth company based in the United States admires Richards selection of Lenticular Art pieces at the recent MCM Expo exhibition in October 2011 and considered them so highly that he twittered Richard on his own twitter page.
