Tung Nguyen: Public Art / Art and Social Consciousness Artist (Shannon Goff)
These ceramics telephones not only show great craftmanship but also add a very youthful aspect to the old telephone. The black one in the background is what we would consider a traditional antique. But changing the color makes them much more contemporary, almost ipod culture with the white one in the middle. I like artists that can look at ordinary objects in a different angle and add a different perspective. Shannon Goff just did that very successfully.
