In the modern world we are surrounded and directed by signs, telling us what to do and shaping our behaviour. American-born artist Brit Bunkley explores these ideas in an exhibition of work titled 3D Works - Signs (and other similar entities) on from the 2nd of March at te tuhi - the mark in Manukau City. In 3D Works Signs (and other similar entities), Bunkley expresses his ongoing interest is semiotics - the study of signs, symbols and the power they exert in our society. In his work, he merges whimsical ideas with those of authority.

Much of Bunkley’s work in the exhibition examines virtual sculpture. These are produced in three ways: poster-sized Lambda prints of three dimensional environs, short movies produced using video editing and associated software, and small sculptures. Bunkley states “I find 3D digital media especially conducive to illustrating disturbing social/political perspectives of globalised modern life. The vicissitudes of globalisation is one of several reoccurring themes in recent years represented by... hand signals, speakers, the abstract schematic letters of logic and math (eg. ‘x’, ‘y’, ‘z’), the globe, television, diffused transnational corporate symbols, cartoon characters - as corporate metaphors and iconic symbols of the modern world.”
