"No one can win against kipple, he said, except temporarily and maybe in one spot” Phillip K Dick, 1968, 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep'.
Useless objects by design or state are collected to cover all horizontal surfaces within a space generating swathes of colourful chaos.

"No one can win against kipple, he said, except temporarily and maybe in one spot”, Phillip K Dick, 1968, 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep'.

Inspired by Phillip K Dicks literary invention, Kipple, which describes the useless objects and detritus that accumulate and surround us.

The installation explores Kipple's parallels with the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, a theory describes how all heat in the universe flows from a hot ordered state into a cold disordered one and which predicts the eventual heat death of the universe.

The vast installation is made up of a colour spectrum of thousands of useless objects, useless by design or by state, covering a large space.

The installation will be open for the full duration of London Design Week and is a free event.

Limited supper club tickets will be available for two evenings of dining and drinking within the installation space. A food menu inspired by ‘Kipple’ will be designed by Matt Phelps, Funthyme Dining & Events. A complimentary cocktail will be invented by Tony Conigliaro of 69 Colebrooke Row.. Wine will be supplied by Guillaume Aubert of Aubert & Mascoli.

Tickets for the supper club will be available from www.funthyme.com

Further details regarding the Private View and Supper Club will follow.
