Composite Show Experiment

 I have no idea what these are. I made them for a show called 'Composite' last year, these are the result of another "oh god I've committed to this project, now I have to somehow make it happen!" situation which I somehow find myself in ever more frequently. So what do you do the night before the show when you have no idea what you are going to make? eventually I settled on making evil super computers out of sheet lead.

 I wasn't entirely happy with the result at the time so I've played with them in Photoshop, just for fun. I really like how weird and degraded the solarised ones are, somehow a little eerie.

 This was how they were seen in the show.

Animal Totem Pole for 3939 shop, Hoxton.

This is hugely out of date but I never posted it at the time so I thought since its a bit cute it deserved a little post. My friends own a shop called 3939 in Hoxton and needed a Christmas window made for the festive period. The month before Christmas is horrible as its the busiest time of year for me and I remember I was incredibly stressed trying to get everything finished before the holidays, but they needed a window urgently and I just couldn't say no (it was Christmas after all) so I spent a night making these multi coloured christmassy critters.
 The shop has 3 mascots, a monkey, a fox and a bear,  I thought it would be fun to make them into a festive Totem pole of sorts, wearing and lifting up gift ideas. In the end, after I'd stopped sulking about all the other stuff  I had to get done and got on with it I had a great time making them, I wonder where they are now.
