Justified Mess

London-based artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster have taken the idea of ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ to a whole new level. Using everyday objects that would otherwise end up as landfill, such as cans, scrap metal, animal carcasses and even dildos (lol), the innovative duo have created sculptures that form amazing shadow projections when light is pointed at them.

The sculptures are an exploration of perceptual psychology and challenge the viewer to see that which our society wastes in a whole new eerrr light (ahem!). A hideous pile of trash is transformed into silhouettes of Tim and Sue enjoying a drink and smoke, a pile of scrap metal becomes a pair of rats making love, and a table of empty cans create a city on the wall.

And suddenly the chaos of mess on my bedroom floor has the potential to become something beautiful. Excuse me while I attempt to assemble all this crap into transformative art so I’ll never have to clean my room again. I’ll call my piece “Justified Mess”.

This could take me a while, so in the meantime, prepare to have your mind blown by these images….
