    Paul Herbst: Dream Material

Aha! A predictably extraordinary, deliciously weird Paul Herbst update

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Remember a while ago we posted a photo of a chicken in a tank? Well, you may not, but at the time there was discussion as to whether it was the best picture that had every appeared on the site. Big call. So now Paul Herbst is back in our lives with some new visuals that both confuse us and fill us with a strange, palpable kind of curiosity. Why are those baseballs attached to that rainbow ribbon? Why does that block of wood look so sexual? All valid questions with regards to his new series Dream Material, which is as intriguing as it is aesthetically pleasing.
