Feeling a little discombobulated

Today’s sphere is somewhat discombobulated. It thought it was meant to be studying basic human interactions but has managed to do so at an illegal rave in the Essex countryside. There’s laser lights, strobes, sweaty ravers, day glo clothing and loud pumping psychedelic trance coming from a nearby speaker pyramid. People seem to be happy but there are many confusing interactions. How is Grey sphere 004 meant to process this? Perhaps it’s best if it heads outside for a quick sit down to get its head together…

It’s on A2 paper and has been made using the magic of spraypaint, stencils¬† and a misspent youth. Drop us a line if interested.

In the Land of Grey and Pink

Today’s sphere has been around for quite a while now. It’s been studying earth culture since it’s appearance shortly after the first nuclear tests in the 1940’s. It was diligently doing it’s job cataloguing and analysing whatever it would come across until one fateful day in the late 60’s when it ‘accidentally’ ingested some acid with English progressive rock band Caravan whilst they were recording their critically well received but commercially unsuccessful third album ‘In the Land of Grey and Pink’. Since then all it has studied are things that are grey and pink. It’s unsure exactly what he’s studying here but he’s clearly enjoying it.

Of every stripe

Sometimes I really not sure if i believe wikipedia. I was looking for some inspiration for this here write up and looked up ‘stripes’. According to Wikipedia ‘stripes on clothing first appeared in the Medieval times. During that era, only prisoners, criminals, clowns, prostitutes, hangmen, etc. were seen wearing a black and white stripped garment.’ This paragraph is then finished with ‘During the 60s and 70s, more and more people started to wear striped shirts as the garment was seen as a symbol of rebellion.’ Now I’m no scholar on stripes but that all sounds like a load of balderdash to me.

Anyway, I digress, today’s sphere is examining some microscopic stripes that are barely visible to the human eye. I’ve magnified the picture enough so it’s all clearly visible. Why she’s examining the microscopic stripes is anyone’s guess. She’s on A2 and has been made using the magic of stripes, stencils, spraypaint and imagination. Drop us a line if interested…

Fireball XL!

Given the current proclivity of ‘re-imagining’ old content for a new generation I’ve gone for a prequel to Fireball XL5 as the design ethic behind this piece. The show now has more adult content and focuses on the sentient yellow spaceship shaped like a ball known only as Fireball XL! It travels the galaxy on an existential quest to find the meaning of life. Here it is hovering above some futuristic tube lines where it’s huge bulk casts a deep shadow on the sea of liquid chalk below. If that’s not what you saw when you looked at it then it’s not my fault. It’s the truth and I’m sticking to it…

Fireball XL! is on A3 paper and is made using the magic of imagination, spraypaint and stencils. Drop us a line if interested.

Shiny Disco Ball

I have somewhat humorously called this piece Shiny Disco Ball. As I’m sure we’re all aware it is in fact a grey sphere of Doom. It’s presence in this universe can only mean trouble. Marvel at it’s sacred geometry but don’t look for too long or it’ll shatter your tiny mind into pieces. Why the blue and red stripes I hear you cry? Well to reveal that would be tantamount to sacrilege. And I won’t be doing that on a Tuesday.

The Triskelion

On the face of it the triskelion or triskele as it’s also known is just a motif with three-fold rotational symmetry. It is, of course, much more than that. It is the headquarters of S.H.I.E.L.D in the Marvel Comics and film franchises, it is the national symbol of Sicily (where is is called ‘trinacria’) and different versions of it have been found in cultures worldwide for thousands of years.

More importantly however it is also the national symbol of the Isle of Man where it’s known as the ‘Three legs on Mann’ and a version with armoured legs with yellow flourishes is featured on the flag against a plain red background. The Sicilians also feature a triskele on their flag but theirs has bare legs, the face of Medusa, three ears of wheat and they favour a yellow and red background. Which makes it all sound a bit busy for my liking.

Anyway today’s piece is a manageable A3 in size was inspired by all the above nonsense. Drop us a line if interested…
