Work No. 700 is the largest sculpture in a series made from stacking objects that ascend or descend in scale. The work is made up of three progressively slimmer I-beams stacked together, simultaneously eliminating and alluding to the intended function of the objects by making them unusable, but retaining a quality that suggests they are second-hand.
Creed’s practice takes in aspects of Minimalism and found art and is characterised by a spirit of enquiry – posing questions about taste, commodification and reality versus the unreal.
