Dystopia and environmental effects
‘Dystopian’ the opposite of ‘Utopian’ where an idealised and visionary world for characterisation is caused by oppression and environmental contamination such as the BP oil spill. The environment metamorphoses into a totalitarian system to present authority over human life. Over production in the assembly line and industrial welfare is attacking natural organisms. This work analyses the transformation of the found objects through environmental damage, the objects are growing into mutated and colossal masses of decay and fungi.
The assembly line roller is the ‘pedestal’ for the found objects to roll and move across, the act was the method of production and the conclusion of a disrupted progression of industry and the heartless consequences that these objects release into the atmosphere. It progresses movement to deteriorate and replaces the original method of display.
Blake Little’s honey photography has influenced the structure of the original car exhaust. Gruesome, sticky amber-like syrup is embedded into the pipe, resembling engine oil, grease, and clogging. The insides are grotesque and reveal the true identity of internal damage.
