I have discovered a piece of work by James Duck that really excited me! His piece ‘Life, Death and that moment in between’ is a very clever visualization of our fragile existence and an exploration of that brief moment between life and death.
He placed a series of hand made ceramic pieces into a vending machine and asked viewers to ‘purchase’ an item. As each one is dispensed by the machine it is smashed, rendering it useless.
This piece of work also explores contemporary consumption.
