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.
In Love and Protest (above) a protestor and soldier embrace in a kiss, raised above the watch face and endlessly turning on the bent second hand.
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.
Above: Love and Protest, 2011. In these times of peaceful protest in the face of armed repression, a protester and soldier kiss.
Above: Comfortably Oblivious, 2011. Here two people fail to give up their seat to an elderly woman with walking stick and bags walking round and round.
Above: The Beautiful Game, 2011. A footballer holds aloft a trophy in the form of a pound symbol (£) as three prospective WAGs fight for his attention.
