The second element features a faux Latin text, known commonly in the design world as placeholder text called Lorem Ipsum. ‘The objects and the text in this work might be familiar but not recognisable’, Shiels says. ‘The bronze sculptures are cast from the empty spaces in clear plastic packaging, but bear little physical resemblance to the toys and implements originally enclosed in those transparent voids. Their origins are obscured and abstracted, just as we are distanced from the industrial processes used to produce the original goods.’
