Rachel Perry Welty (Drawing Fellow ’04) has made a lot of things – cereal boxes, produce sticker drawings, wall spam – in conceptual work that probes the hidden corners of consumer culture. Most recently, she’s made a magazine cover.
Her sculpture “Product” is featured on the May 2008 cover of ID Magazine. (Click on the image above for a detail of the sculpture.) The work (installed at Johnson & Johnson Global Design HQ) is made up of miniature versions of more than 600 J&J products. And like consumption itself, the sculpture goes on and on: Rachel will add to it as new products hit the market.
And another big picture:
Caleb Neelon (Sculpture/Installation Fellow ’07) passed along the above photo. His show “Caleb Neelon Is Working On It” runs through May 30 at Carmichael Gallery in West Hollywood, CA, and the photo shows him creating a mural at the corner of La Brea and Melrose in Los Angeles.
