Iron Fist


50 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm
Chrome plated GRP, TV, DVD player, two-way mirror


A giant fist, cast in chrome, sits on top of a screen that continuously scrolls flags from different countries. The fist is enclosed in a reflective mirror box, causing the colors and shapes from the flags to wrap around the fist.


Every country has rules imposed upon their citizens. The fist represents the force behind these rules, morphing in color and pattern to reflect the flags as they scroll underneath.
