Made from carefully arranged materials, Noble & Webster’s “He/She” art piece reflects the artists’ silhouettes in a private act. “Dirty white trash (with gulls)” is another self-portrait made from 6 months worth of their trash, 2 taxidermy seagulls and a light projector. For their “Miss Understood & Mr. Meanor” installation they show once again that they don’t take themselves too seriously, projecting their chopped heads on the wall via multicolored masses of urban plastic trash [1].

Welded scrap metal and a light projector is all these mad British artists need to create two rats copulating in their “Metal Fucking Rats”. While “Sunset over Manhattan” reminds us of this recent post [2], and is made from empty cigarette packets, tin cans shot by air gun pellets and a wooden bench. But it is their “British Wildlife” which really draws our attention. Their beautiful piece is shocking yet sad, and is comprised of 88¬†taxidermy¬†animals they found already dead in Britain.

Disgusting, beautiful, bad taste, sustainable, extremely sad, or funny — what do you think about Noble & Webster’s controversial art?
