4 studios: 2

Doug Coupland's studio is the polar opposite of Jeff Wall's. It is a flurry of busyness, with thousands of period plastic items, things hanging from the ceiling, things inspiring assembly. Only our mutual friend Maddie Vriesendorp's
is madder and fuller of oddities. This time there were kid's letter blocks, arranged in sections of most regular language use ready for making his 'talking sticks.'. His world is is full of an intensely colourful array of evocative populist things, reconstituted out of context to bring them to alarming attention.
Above is a spool wall in his house.
