Noble & Webster
Toxic Schizophrenia

1997

516 UFO caps, lamps and holders, 6mm foamex, vinyl, aerosol

260 x 200 cm

Toxic Schizophrenia is a classic badass tattoo, constructed from 516 little light bulbs. Blaring violently bright and self-indulgent, Tim Noble and Sue Webster take pop art to the extreme, blowing it up in lights like fly-by-night casino chintz. The artist design and make these light paintings themselves, creating a DIY glam that's better than the real thing.
