    TUAW reports today on a new, free exhibition at London’s Science Museum (which is always well worth a visit anyway) called Electroboutique Pop-up, which will surely be of interest to Apple fans. The exhibit is the work of Russian artists Alexei Shulgin and Aristarkh Chernyshev, and it features several artworks based on Apple products. For example, you have a giant iPhone that has been stretched out into a spiral shape, a warped iPod, and a dog using an iPad. According to the Science Museum blurb, the works use “live data, sophisticated custom electronics and bespoke software.†The Science Museum also says that while the exhibit is a lot of fun to interact with, it also has a deeper meaning if you choose to look for it, and is designed to “lightly raise more serious questions around art production, design aspiration, technological progress, consumerism, capitalism, media control, and the languages of corporate social responsibility.â€

    Electroboutique Pop-up runs until Tuesday, February 14, 2012, in the Science Museum in London, and you will find it on the Ground Floor Mezzanine.

    Also, for lovers of English art, the David Hockney exhibition "A Bigger Picture" exhibition at the London Academy contains some of his works he's created on his iPad using the Brushes app. The exhibitions runs 21st Jan to 9th April. It's ticket only and many popular dates have already sold out.

    Ah yes thank you for that, I hadn't realised that exhibition featured his iPad work too, I'll try and do a news story on it in the near future.
