Office Figurines Get A Role in Real World, by Derrick Lin
Figurines have not a dedicate audience, not a pre-defined structure and in general every artist have the freedom to experiment on her work. Yet when someone sees them most of the times she is fully engaged. Examples on EWAT were Sculpture Figurines by Christina Zimmer Robinson or Fashion Is Nuts by Donald Robertson; both great and both different.
Some very interesting office dioramas are presented by Marsder (a.k.a. Derrick Lin). The most exciting aspect of this all is the interrelationship these dioramas have with real life objects and actual people. It is as if they are in their own world, though this world is not isolated, rather it is interdependent with the real world, our world.
“I work in advertising and my workday is often very chaotic and unpredictable. While trying not to let the stress get the best of me, I decided to turn the mundane and often annoying little moments in my agency life into inspirations for something whimsical and magical.” he explains. And indeed he gets the attention he needs by his co-workers. A very interesting approach of art. Enjoy.
