S Mark Gubb




Slogans frequently occur in S Mark Gubb's work, invoking often ironically, the clichés of religious and inspirational texts or making barbed references to political  posturing.

Tom Sachs



Chanel Chainsaw, 1996
 


Hermés Value Meal, 1997
 



Prada Toilet, 1997

A Methodology frequently deployed by Tom Sachs is to re-create mass-produced objects by hand. The material mimicry asks us to reconsider both taken for granted design of an everyday item and the process of it's realisation. Here we see much-laboured over, toilets, burgers and brutal machinary.

The Israeli artists and product designer's handknotted Tibetan wool rug embodies a direct message.

Not Vital


Cow Dung, 1990
The Swiss artists Not Vital was attracted to the idea of turning manure (valued in Nepal, worthless in Switzlerand) into something valuable by casting it in Bronze (worthless in Nepal, valued in Switzerland).

Straight from Friedman's montrous and cartoonish aesthetic come these dollar bill screenprints that cost somewhat more than their face value at $6,000 each.

Reaching Out


Nero - Reaching Out from Helin Film on Vimeo.


Nero - Reaching Out, directed by Johanna Andersson.
This music video had everything that you'd expect from the 80's on speed. You've got the aviators, thong bikinis, casino action, speed boats and last but not least flamingos. It's completely Miami Vice and it's brilliant; the graphics, colours and text. The song doesn't really do it for me, but you can still appreciate the visual brilliance whilst muted.

The Sculpture Studio - Wimbledon College of Art



These are some beautiful photos taken by Geo Pavlov, a friend and fellow student. I'm not really sure if they were for his work, or just because he's a whizz kid when it comes to photography, nonetheless these photos are amazing and really capture the essence of the 3rd year studio.
