2014: Mikala Dwyer ‘The Weight Of Shape’

Mikala Dwyer’s The Weight of Shape is a physical demonstration of thought patterns: at once geometric and organic; synthetic and natural; opaque and translucent; slick and porous; flat and voluptuous; at some moments static and then unexpectedly and uncontrollably mobile.

2008: Peter Hennessey ‘My Humvee (Inversion Therapy)’

My Humvee (inversion therapy) by Peter Hennessey is a full sized, highly detailed rendition of a M1025 HMMWV, more commonly known as a Humvee.  The work is meticulously recreated according to the actual dimensions of a Jeep, but produced using processes and materials that ‘perform’ the object rather than reproduce it.

2006: Michael Parekowhai ‘Cosmo’

Michael Parekowhai’s Cosmo is caught in the headlights or perhaps looking down the barrel of a shotgun. Either way, he’s running scared. He seems to be the underdog, but don’t be fooled by his cute exterior.
