London designer Dominic Wilcox has expanded his series of sculptures featuring tiny characters balanced on watch hands with three new scenes tackling protest and surveillance.

The UC Davis Protest (above) depicts depicts a circle of protestors subjected to pepper spray by a central rotating police lieutenant, while Captured (below) shows CCTV cameras watching over three figures taking photos and videos.

The three new pieces are on show alongside four others from the series at Phillips de Pury in London.

The first pieces in the series were commissioned by Dezeen last year, including a looter running off with a TV while a riot policeman stands and watches, and a young girl trying to stop a butcher killing a floating pig - see them all here.

Watch Dominic Wilcox talking about the project in our interview with him on Dezeen Screen. The captions below are from Wilcox.

Above: UC Davis Protest, 2011. I find it disturbing when people in positions of power abuse it and lose any sense of humanity. I was shocked to see the footage of the pepper spraying of people sitting in a peaceful protest at UC Davis. I felt a need to capture this incident in time.

    mhhh…just getting confused about the “londoness” of dezeen a little. wonder why london is coming first. i love dezeen but feels strange to see so many designers and architects features from london area…what about the rest of the world?

      I'd put that down to two things. #1 the huge amount of designers,artists and Architects based in London. #2 Dezeen is based in Britain and therefore is obviously going to have more access to British designers than any other nationality.
