Artist Marc Quinn, whose frozen head of blood is starring at HyperReal, has shared video footage about how the head is made. "It's like artwork on life support," he says, as technicians pour 5.6 litres of blood inside the silicon mould of Quinn's own head. Once frozen, the mould is removed and the sculpture is carefully placed inside "a sophisticated deep freeze". "If you unplugged it the head would turn into a pool of blood."
One wonders what circus matriarch Phyllis Ashton would think of her family's latest act Infamous, a cabaret circus sensation. It's an over 18 show, a mix of circus acts and burlesque. It's not afraid to tease, and perhaps even please, with skin and plenty of sex appeal. "Oh she would have loved it," says her grand-son Joseph, a sixth-generation circus artist and show producer. "It's got everything she liked, the trapeze, the wheel of death, the acrobats, contortionists."
Bled is an exhibition/installation inspired by Scott Pollock's journey into the art world - how it happened, what inspires him, the process of creativity and ultimately finding his voice. Pollock discovered his creativity after having an aneurysm with a small bleed on the brain. As a side effect from the operation he had an episode of hypomania. One of the symptoms of hypomania can be a state of heightened creativity.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
