Brand iconography

I'm sure you're familiar with the recent art-prank involving a facsimile of the Damien Hirst diamond skull.

The artist behind it is Laura Keeble. And the graveyard icons above are her latest work.

This is a very witty idea and I love it.

Not sure I can say the same for Laura's cliched art-speak though. Why can't these people just speak English!?

Here's her thinking behind the idea:

"The project was based on the theory of magical thinking, looking at belief systems and idol worship, and creating an intervention that plays with the viewers perception and with any luck(;-)) creates a pause for thought!"

Despite her art-speak pretentions, Laura is definitely a talent to watch.
