I am pretty ashamed of myself for not making down to KK Outlet for the "object abuse" show which from work I have seen in cyber space really did look pretty super. Above is the work of Dominic Wilcox who was previously featured on the blog here,
And here is a little more about the show,
KK Outlet challenged a group of leading artists, designers and stylists to take an everyday object, remould, rebuild and repurpose it to create an entirely new item using as little additional materials as possible.
An umbrella transforms into a flat pack kite
For sale signs become a flat pack birdhouse
A lightbulb becomes a micro-greenhouse
A sofa becomes a Pantomime horse
The aim of the project is to create a collection of re-imagined objects which highlight not only how everyday items can be recycled into something new but also how we think differently when we work with our hands and how physical interaction creates new ideas over and above working through concepts on screen.
What a fantastic concept for an exhibition!
