LEFTOVER

Dunhill and O’Brien attempted to put their studio waste to good use. This work comprised of all of the test pieces, mock ups and unused components from a 2 year period collected together and covered with thick layers of grey ‘tarmac scatter granules’ (as used for model railway scenery).
The 567 dusted objects, which varied in size from a few centimetres to 2 meters were assembled together on a tailor made cart/display case. This collection of redundant and failed objects acted as a kind of thesaurus of sculptural dysfunction.
