oh my....more photos from the .<....CUBEOPEN. 2010....>

Fancy little chairs. I like this idea of taking un-expected materials and turning them into a representation of useable object.

Adam Heiss: 'Underground series.'
'Subway tunnel are like another world which exists underneath everday reality.'

Blackpool is a grim place, it seems to have fallen down from its once high stature in British society. Having visited Blackpool quite a lot since birth, this work really connected to my own ideas about Blackpool and how it seems to be clinging on whilst the drunks and penis hat wearing 'stag-du' men try to pull it away. The images capture the fading bold colour and the now high unemployment rates and low tourism in Blackpool.

The work above attracted my attention because it is similar to my use of lines and colour,yet it seems to be based on the contours of land and locations.The 2 other blue 2d works also use 'parrallel walls,interlocking cylinders and repetitive forms. Somewhere between the pen,paper surface and hand,the story takes place,' in this representation of 'an architecture waiting to take place.'

Emily speed: Egg- nest- home-country-universe.
This work is described as miniature architecture, a 'hybrid form of incubator/shelters,' with the aim of this work being to convey how architecture affects the shaping of our identities. The title of the work was inspired by, 'The Hunchback of Notredame,' which i did not expect. I LOVED this work with a passion,the use of such delicate little eggs and architectural elements was quite humorous but conveyed a message to me of the idea of home and what home means and how themes such as architecture can be interpreted in interesting ways.

These models are so tiny and intricate yet they communicate so much which i found intriguing. I interpreted this work as small representations a derelict areas,in which piles of discarded broken pieces of objects can be found in piles. I think this work is by Carly Fischer,whose work focuses on the gentrification of contemporary urban space and the reproduction of an aesthetic. Fisher explores the fetishisation of junk,the piles become design objects.'
