Marking Time


Marking Time is a series of readymades, found on the street. Rust, wear and tear and defacement have all added to the texture of the materials and to the narrative behind them.

The series is a reflection of JakBox’s wider interest in the urban environment. Their input into these pieces is in the selection of the objects, based purely on textural interest. Each suggests visual connotations to styles of artwork - some may look like abstract paintings, others like landscapes.

By giving the objects a new purpose, by reimagining and reassembling them, JakBox asks the viewer to reconsider them in this new context. We are made to see them afresh, to make different associations and interpretations of these objects, once discarded as trash on the urban landscape.
