Why flattened cans. Flattened cans comment on our consumer society, our indisciplined throwaway society, the power of logos, the strength of aluminium and the weakness of steel. And flattened cans have unintentional almost 'organic' shapes, plus a range of rough textures overlaying the original bright colours. The best flattened cans are created by cars running over them repeatedly in the street. In short then are spontaneous art objects of the consumer age.
