    One of the things I love about these pieces is the lack of snark or sarcasm in the work. Sure, it’s using a medium that grandmas use, but Venom puts a lot of love and care into his craft. Plus he genuinely enjoys the metal bands which he uses as material. @benvenom

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
