Massive Waves of Old Magazines Consume Everyday Objects

Scottish sculptor David Mach thrives on the concept of taking everyday materials and collectively transforming them into extraordinary objects. From wire hangers to matchsticks, the artist produces small- and large-scale temporary installations in attempts to find new meaning in everyday, found objects. In these mountainous installations, Mach sculpted seas of old magazines into giant, swirling waves that appear to be consuming all kinds of objects, from old cars to large pieces of furniture.

In an interview earlier this year, Mach said, “I’m a materials junkie, I just can’t get my hands on enough stuff to make things with.” The artist finds that, by using things with which we all (including himself) interact with daily, he is able to build an immediate connection with his viewers. The size and scale of his pieces are incredibly massive and it’s impossible to pass by without stopping to reflect on the sheer magnitude of his artwork.

According to his bio, “Mach's practice subverts traditional meanings assigned to objects and reassigns them surreal or anarchic connotations, often surprising the viewer through scale, materiality or concept and prompting the viewer to reconsider their preconceptions.”
