Tom Sachs


Tom Sachs is a contemporary sculptor known for his recreation of modern icons. Amongst his most controversial pieces are a McDonald's constructed out of plywood and a toilet built out of Prada shoe boxes.

After studying Le Corbusier and utopian designers, I saw that it wasn't really up to them anymore. I figured I might as well indulge in what was more gratifying, which was building stuff.
