“This video was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was Queen. I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. And of this world, I dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. Enjoy.” — Lorde

KED recently took on the task of making everyday objects “visable again”, like WC pans, satellite dishes, pavers and a bench. Turning them in to a strange looking Discoballs. KED likes to created something with what already exists and makes an art piece out of it. Even though his artwork is meant to set free in nature, some objects are put in museums.

Same hair, make-up and clothes on, but Barbie 2.0 is shaped like a ‘real’ girl!
