i've been looking at revital cohen's provoking work recently, UTTERLY gutted she actually came to our uni for a lecture only a few days ago and i didn't have a clue about it! (cross-curriculum communication sucks ass - i also managed to miss the epically amazing tim walker because it was posted so last minute - grhhhh!)…anyway, rant over. cohen controversially proposes the use of animals as medical devices, rendering the human almost parasitical, but she harnesses the design in a way that is beneficial for both animal and human…they become dependant on one another to survive; her 'respiratory dog' illustrates this fascinating relationship between species.

i reeeally, really like vicky wright's 'guardian' series. using oil on board, she's created an almost crystal-like organic form that progresses out from its modest canvas. heavily influenced by her family's involvement in coal mining, it deals with the de-stabilization of the human figure and the economic demise of the industry.

william hundley series 'entoptic phenomena' entails a series of surreal shapes suspended in the air; created through the subject jumping whilst draped in material.
also his 'little naked person storage' series is quite humorous - check out more on his website.
