The latest works from New York-based artist Ben Bunch are foam based sculptures of popular electronic gadgets. The installations are essentially huge piles of junk rendered beautifully by the artist's keen eye. To create these retro-looking sculptures, Bunch assembles foam, chipboard, glue, paper collage, markers and spray paint.
These timely sculptures comment on the speed at which modern consumers use technology and just as quickly discard them. The piled up Walkmans, record players and retro computer games are all examples of outdated technology that was once on the cutting edge.
A spokeperson for the artist explained on his site, "[Ben's] objects are hand-made employing basic tools in the most time consuming manner. The end result is an object that mimics the look of industrial fabrication and relishes the geometry and beauty of consumerism."
