Dan Tobin Smith’s sweeping color gradient installation in his London studio is a sight behold! Titled “The First Law Of Kipple”, Smith has covered his 200 square meter London Studio with objects donated by the public, ranging from matchbox-sized to chair-sized — the objects have been painstakily arranged according to their hue.
Not sure what kipple is? We weren’t either but it’s inspired by Philip K Dick’s 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, which science fiction fans might know better as the film Bladerunner. The book describes ‘kipple’ as all the useless, used-up or pointless stuff that we collect around ourselves.
