Dominic Wilcox and Yuri Suzuki
Dominic Wilcox creates unique and innovative objects, drawings and installations, inspired by everyday environments and human interactions. Layered with a dry wit, his work places a spotlight on the banal; adding a new, alternative perspective on things that are taken for granted.
Since graduating from London's Royal College of Art in Design Products in 2002, his work has been exhibited and published worldwide. Wilcox has worked on a number of commissions for organisations and brands including Nike and Esquire. In 2012, projects included the design of a pair of shoes with inbuilt GPS to guide the wearer home, and the launch of Variations on Normal, a book of his invention drawings.
A sound artist, designer and electronic musician, Yuri Suzuki explores sound through designed objects. With sound evermore reduced to data, Suzuki creates objects that give new meaning to obsolete analogue technology. Often using the vinyl record as raw material, he lends sound a new physicality.
A Design Products postgraduate from the Royal College of Art, London, Suzuki founded his studio in 2008 to create his own work and commissions for major brands. His sound art pieces and installations have been widely exhibited in the UK and internationally and in 2013 he published his first book, B-side of Onomatopeic Music, a collection of visualisations of soundscapes.
