Marc Garrett interviews Tamiko Thiel about "All Hail Damien Hirst!" An Augmented Reality Intervention @ Tate Modern.
Interest in Damien Hirst and his commercialized, celebrity status is well known. So when we heard that Tamiko Thiel was making the artwork "All Hail Damien Hirst!", we were immediately curious. Hirst is an extremely rich individual with powerful allies within wealthy, traditional art establishment circles. This includes Charles Saatchi, and commercially dedicated art mags and art institutions whom have all successfully helped in marketing his particular brand as part of their own economic strategy. With this in mind and acknowledging the potential risk in satirizing a well known art celebrity we thought it was a good idea to interview Thiel about her ideas and experience on the project?http://www.furtherfield.org/features/interviews/all-hail-damien-hirst-augmented-reality-intervention-tate-modern
