Artist Colwyn Griffith

I was looking at the Modern Contemporary Art blog today and came across the artwork of Colwyn Griffith.

Griffith creates these diorama like installations and then photographs them. I especially like his
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Empire series where he "investigates the multifarious nature of empire" by "blend(ing) domestic craft, sculpture and architectural set design with heavily processed, multinational-produced junk foods to emphasize a new empirical reality of corporate colonization."

Pictured at the right is his Great Wall, 2004 which is made of rice cereal.
