Art at work

This is the webgroup’s first online gallery show. It is titled 10 ways to kill a pig.

Pig In a Box

Pig In A Box

A scathing critique of the established order, Pig In A Box is the Webgroup’s first work. Notice the pill. ‘Big Pharma’, the pharmaceutical empire, is here deconstructed. Why is the pig in the box ? Is he dead ? Did the pill kill him or will it save him ? An homage to Schroedinger’s cat, to breaking free. To hope. Even within our boxes.

Pig On A Stick

The Webgroup’s second work, Pig On A Stick, takes on darker overtones. An homage to Lord Of The Flies, it is youthful innocence defiled. When you turn the pencil, the pig turns.

Pig On A String

Their final work, their swan song, Pig On A String is the culmination of the Webgroup’s work. Notice the coffee cup – it helps to hang the pig. Free coffee isn’t free. Suspended from office supplies. Is this what office supplies are for ? What they do ? The pencils and the paper. This pig is dead.

10 ways. Why 3 exhibits ? Three is the triumvirate, the magic number, the whole in parts. All parts are one. One is all the parts.

Who is the pig herein represented ?

    Geesh thats nice. Another way you could do this, would be filling an automatic pill dispenser with chunks of meat that are stuffed with poisonous pills. Then put the pig infront of it and have it eat the meat every hour, on the hour.

    Oh and btw I think the Java network programming book featured in the final picture is actually mine. Can you check if it has my name in it? If so I should like a cut of any proceeds made from the selling of this magnum opus.

    A more perverted parade of porcine peril has never been seen. This tremendous work of pink plasticised piggy pornography should be snapped up by a Saatchi immediately.

    Can I ask if any pigs were harmed during the making of these works?
