Phunk x Mighty Jaxx – Love Bomb Pre-Order
Singaporean brand Mighty Jaxx has seemingly come out of nowhere this year with several excellent releases that happily blur the line between art toy and sculpture. Their next project is Love Bomb by Singapore-based Phunk Studio. This 12” resin project replicates the awesome and perhaps fearsome wonder of the original life size sculpture show during the collective’s Universality (2007) museum exhibit in Taiwan.
Sexy. Dangerous. Cool. Love Bomb is one of those 3D objects whose relentless pull comes in part from the amazement that they exist at all. If you’ve ever seen an amazing illustration and thought, ‘wow too bad it’s only 2D’ then you know what I’m talking about. It’s the joy in realizing that someone’s love of it -- ‘just because’ is as strong and idiosyncratic as yours. I could try to rationalize it by talking about the fetish appeal of the near limitless destructive power of atom bombs or physical aspects such as the glossy surface, or the sweet extruded letters but really its appeal is greater than the sum of those explanations. I just crave it.
Limited to 100 pieces, Love Bomb is available for pre-order now @ Mighty Jaxx for $288 and will be released in the First Quarter of 2013.
