Extrusion 19. Log-out and Last-life

Westwood, Martin
As with a great deal of the Westwood's works, the choice of imagery and paraphernalia are reminiscent of corporate identity and 1980s inspired office space. There is a sense of fixity, repression and anonymity about the work. His decision to rigidly pin down representations of human muscles, for example, hints at the idea of the corporate world as dehumanising.
