Miniature Acid House Photography
Bin Juce stomped his way through the UK’s acid house, rave and clubland movements in the 80s 90s, and became obsessed with the music of the time. His passion for the scene took him to a myriad of clubs, raves & warehouse parties all over the UK and those hedonistic days were to define him forever.
Now a little older he has turned to art to present his version of events from way back when. He’s currently focusing on 3D works based on the
manipulation of miniature figures. His works explore the many faces of the UK’s dance music revolution through physical modelling and musical reference:
His works are typically inspired by
The music scenes that shaped him as a kid. He thinks about those years every single day and has done since it all ended, to be honest, he's bursting to tell his story through his music and art. Bin Juce's favourite part of the creation process is the acid heads, he loves bringing them to life.
The spraying process at this scale is prone to error, creating a myriad of faces, so they’re all completely unique, just like us. He doesn't throw any away or re-spray them cos they’re all god’s children – and he's their creator – lol. It’s all in the eyes and he loves to go overboard with the spray gun and make them look properly ‘spangled’, just like his brothers and sisters back in the day.
It’s difficult to describe what he experienced back then. The vibrations that ran through them all, that special bond and the invisible force that bound them all together so tightly. Week after week they shared the best nights of their lives with complete strangers, nights that shaped and defined them, their characters, morals and how they lived their lives.
Bin Juce has always been creative, as a kid he was always making stuff. He has been producing music on and off for the last 35yrs but physical artwork is a relatively new field to him. Life is hard and confusing at best, so creating takes him away from all that. It puts him in another moment, full of happy memories and very happy people.
