War of the Worlds…

War of the Worlds a ceramic installation by Simon Fell
War of the Worlds, earthenware, bamboo, chain, light bulbs & wiring h80cm.
Full title: “A melodramatic tableau loosely based on H.G.Wells’ ‘War of the Worlds’ featuring a renegade cohort of obsolete entertainment modules intent on changing the course of history forever and ever (with extreme prejudice).” This group of eight part-glazed terra-cotta televisions represents a departure into mixed media and work on a larger scale. The ceramic units are on bamboo legs. Each one has an electric light bulb inside it.

A ceramic installation work that looks at redundancy, consumerism and technology through the lens of a melodramatic science fiction scenario. This piece evolved from a previous work featuring a tv set.
