james clar, 'the difference between me & you' 2010
Two TV screens face each other, one playing Fox News and the other Al Jazeera. In between them is a diffused piece of acrylic that takes the light from the two screens and mixes them together. This piece brings to focus the key difference between various cultures, which is the information we are given from the time we are born. The maintenance of culture and nationality is something we are trained to do. In this piece the most popular news outlets in the US and the Middle East are used as representatives of this information. Their visual information is combined and meshed together into a physical object, breaking down their political and social agenda into abstract light.
Get handy with statement bracelet rings!
Theres nothing quite like getting your hands all dressed up, we adorn the rest of our body so why not make your hands as fabulous as your outfit! We truly understand now why Topshop went mad over harness necklaces last season, this season we’re bringing harness jewellery back with these Indian and punk inspired hand chains. The great thing about these statement rings is that you can literally (and we mean that) with ANYTHING! Top tip to get the same look: layer up your bracelets and rings and get the same effect. Aspire to the punk God that is Dame vivienne Westwood and take a leaf out of her badass book.
These lovelies all come in at under £5, We searched high and low for the perfect statement pieces and found Topshop and eBay were by far the cheapest and the bloody best!
