Join us in the quest to collect kipple, and be part of an ambitious, large-scale artwork for the London Design Festival 2014.
Photographer Dan Tobin Smith wants your help to collect and donate objects to become part of his exhibition The First Law of Kipple. It’s inspired by Science Fiction writer Philip K Dick’s 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (later adapted as the film Blade Runner).
The book describes the fictional concept of ‘kipple’ — all the useless, used-up or pointless stuff that we humans collect around ourselves.
Tobin Smith’s installation will fill an entire floor and mezzanine of his studio with ‘kipple’, carpeting 200-square-metres with a dense, precise, chromatically-themed arrangement of thousands of objects. The installation will be open to visitors throughout the London Design Festival.
Donate your kipple and be part of this remarkable feat.
Branksome China was shown at the British Industries Fair in 1947 and quickly became one of the country‟s most desirable tableware brands. Bought and used by Queen Mary, by 1955 Branksome was exported all over the Commonwealth.
