Artistic Statement

Is it Dubai? Is it Hong Kong? New York? Singapore? Toronto? Vancouver? Or all of the above?
Cities used to be the result of collective will and a desire to shape – to control – our environments. They were expressions of the things that happened in them. Now they're about branding and image. Like plastic, they're no longer built to last - they can be pulled down when fashions change. Laird's work expresses the modern absence of community in city-shaping and show us how the line between plastic and uninhabited has become virtually indistinguishable from the “real thing”.
