Umbrella's article

Matt shared this link yesterday, it is an article about the show.

Anyone looking for some artistic inspiration in the capital should head over to the annual graduate show of the MA Digital Arts course at University of the Arts, which takes place between September 2-8 and includes – amongst others – the work of Umbrella contributor Matt Lee.
You might remember Matt for his terrific Indian matchbox collectionwe featured in Issue One, but since then he’s turned his hand to the moving image. His new project is called The Presence of Absencewhich, he says, “facilitates a dialogue between inside/outside and a tension between what is known, assumed and thought”. This, Matt assures us, is less puzzling than it sounds.
UAL graduate shows feature the work of students from across the globe who come together for two weeks each year to showcase the very best of the visual arts.

As well as Matt’s videos, other highlights include David Tatnell’s spooky time-lapse films of power plants, Maya Chami’s psychedelic animations and Melanie Menard’s excellent Ghost House project, which takes the form of something that always gets the thumbs up from us at Umbrella – a study of abandoned buildings.
