Noam Toran

I really like the work of artist Noam Toran, especially one of his collections - Desire Management:

"Desire Management is a film comprising five sequences in which objects are used as vehicles for dissident behaviour. In the film, the domestic space is defined as the last private frontier, a place where bespoke appliances provide unorthodox experiences for alienated people"

I want my work to have this strange quality about it - to highlight people's obsessions & to create a new, tailor made experience using references from existing objects.

  1. The idea of 'bespoke appliances' providing satisfying peoples obsessions reminds me of that Frank Zappa song on Joe's garage, about the Cyborg sex-bot lady. I think she had an attached appliance for making toast.
