ISLAND by Ian Strange, is an interesting photographic project featuring houses tagged with enormous, desperate slogans.

But it wouldn’t be (the sparsely updated, sorry) VaccuumPacked if something interesting wasn’t immediately undermined by artist’s statement wankery. Presented without (any further) comment…

ISLAND reflects on the home through the metaphor of the desert island, a place of personal sovereignty but simultaneously entrapment. ISLAND interplays the monumental with the intimate and intangible. Exploring the icon of the home as a deeply vulnerable object and personal vessel for memory, identity and aspiration.
