Warning: Last items in stock!
This elegant matchbox-style gift box contains four designs from Stereohype's growing button badge collection – now available for the first time in this superb packaging solution. A rose-gold foil-blocked Stereohype mascot squirrel was hand-printed in the UK at the top of the gift box (outside dimensions: 75 x 72 x 16mm). Inside the beautiful matt black cardboard gift box is a black flock pad and badges are directly pinned into it. All Stereohype button badges available at stereohype.com are classic high quality one inch (25mm) metal back badges with so-called D-pin (although it looks more like an 'e'). Tiny stickers at the back of each button badge mention the artist, release date, series number, etc. Badges are manufactured with love and care in the United Kingdom.
‘The “To Cage” project evolved slowly and was driven by many influences. I had worked intensely in the studio for a period, building and shooting ambiguous spaces populated with the merest hint of occupation. During a chance visit to a zoo I realised these spaces were already built for me! The pictures were informed by the amateur aesthetic of haphazard family “snaps” from zoo trips in the 1970s. Over time and I began to see the zoo in darker terms, as a theatrical stage where animals are placed, as if they were trophies. I wanted to convey this intense voyeuristic feeling.’ — Dominic Davies
Dominic's v23-designed book “To Cage” – a study of the European zoo environments – was published by Kruse Verlag.
