My first encounter with Roxy Paine’s work was his exhibition of  ‘Control Room’ – I was awed then and it just keeps getting better. What you’re looking at is a full scale replica of a commercial fast food kitchen.  I’ll be indulgent and call it an androgynous one at that – no logos, no colors, no distinctions of any kind. A tasty little parallel to what is or isn’t artificial in this environment and the one it mimics.
