"iMan Prototypes"
by sabine7 / June 5, 2005

Ricky Swallow’s iMan Prototypes series of 2001sculptures are a clever take on the popularity and inclusion within pop culture of the Apple iMac computers. These injection-moulded resin skulls have nicely co-opted the translucency and colouring of the iMac. Swallow points out the branding of knowledge while calling attention to the obsolescence of various technologies. Indeed, Swallow’s work can be seen as fossilizing our playthings of the here and now. His barnacle encrusted resin GameBoy will be the iPod in a few years...
