'Wish You Were Here'!



Haniboi's pieces tread a fine, but artfully crafted line between the rigidity of product design, and the necessity to express personal sentiment as a contemporary artist.
 

Available at the Nelly Duff gallery, each encased in a high gloss 
vinyl sleeve and embossed with the artist's signature on the reverse, Haniboi's 'Wish Your Were Here' cards are indeed beautifully finished design pieces. Yet they also form a playful commentary on the rigidity of Google Maps' 'You Are Here' symbol, enabling the user to manipulate this iconic design to suit their own needs, whilst modern tracking devices and the like continue to envelop contemporary society..
