Inspiration Wanted

Julie Mathias and Wolfgang Kaeppner established WOKmedia in 2004. They are based in London with a production studio in Shanghai.
Wokmedia’s work is primarily concerned with the emotional dimension, an archetypal memory or a physical sensation.

The products of "Made in China" represent innocent children toys acting as a kind of space invaders emerging from a world hidden inside our childhood memories. Specifically invading antique Chinese furniture, starting to threaten their traditional past.
Revealing a surreal and terrifying landscape of derailed trains, drowning babies, crashing planes and wild dinosaurs.
Limited edition series of the ‘Made in China’ collection. Each piece is unique, featuring traditional Chinese furniture embedded with hand-carved wooden toys and finished in white lacquer
