Koon and the Lobster

I was at the Jeff Koons exhibition in the Serpentine gallery, London, this saturday. Even if intentional, I must confess that his depiction of kitsch, banality and consumerism didn't impress me.

As an engineer what really impressed me was the realism of the cast aluminium models . In the present case children’s pool toys like the lobster in the picture above. Believe it or not it is an aluminium model. The thing really looks like plastic ! Just extremely well done.
