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.
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.
