Amon Tobin + Tessa Farmer at the Crypt Gallery

Electronic music pioneer Amon Tobin collaborated with contemporary artist Tessa Farmer on an amazing exhibition at the Crypt Gallery in St. Pancras Church.  Farmer's sculptures are constructed from bits of organic material (roots, dead insects, bones), and Amon Tobin similarly rearranges natural elements to make something both imagined and tangible.  Tobin was actually at the Crypt Gallery, so he signed my copy of his new album ISAM!  

As an amusing side note, my boyfriend got one of the large insects stuck to his baseball cap.  Tessa Farmer was present, so he pulled the insect off his cap and gave her back the piece of her artwork.
