While spending two months in New York for the Summer, London-based artist Chris Godfrey wanted to buy souvenirs for his friends and family, but was confronted by a monotony of generic and cheaply reproduced items. He decided to produce an original object using dozens of cheap, junky souvenirs, capturing that feeling of discovery and adventure that he found when he first visited New York. Godfrey bought a large model of the Statue of Liberty and made a silicone mold of it, in one complete piece. He then poured in dozens of these souvenirs along with clear resin. The result is a one off and original piece; created from un-original, mass produced objects.
