Edition of 18 numbered copies
An editioned version of a 2010 work by acclaimed London-based artist and designer Daniel Eatock. The entire contents of a can of spray paint is emptied into the oncoming air stream of a desktop fan. The paint exits the aerosol and is redirected back towards itself, evenly covering the canister in the paint it previously held, rendering it an icon of itself. Each are unique, with the edition size determined by the availability of colours from a common brand of spray paint.
The boxed work, with accompanying polaroid, is available for $150 CDN each, here. Each are unique, with the edition size determined by the availability of colours from a standard/popular brand of spray paint. Colours include Gold, Silver, Florida Orange, Forest Green, RV White, etc. etc.
