I chose the piece "Killing Time" by Damien Hirst, created in 2008 because it intrigued me in various ways. While I was looking through all of his work, this one seemed very different. He loves to sculpture animals in his art however, this one has more of a plain feel. Its very relatable; which pulls your mind to start thinking about what the meaning could be behind it. Inside the box figure is a desk, chair and water bottle; with that it resembles an area for work. It can encourage the idea of an enclosed area and how sometimes people may feel claustrophobic while they work or that they feel a need to escape within their job. I enjoy this piece very much and felt it was most appropriate to blog.
