The first experience of a Mutoid Waste installation may trigger a load of reactions. Often it starts with the inevitable "wow" of disbelief. After a few seconds, when reality has somehow kicked back in, this disbelief morphs into pure joy and then a sense of playfulness. Spending time around their creations I have also felt something more unexpected -- a sense of the familiar. Suddenly it can seem like the magnificent and unique mutations have always been there, kind of just around the place.
Really good art and music tends to have that effect I find -- tapping into our core and hitting the spot without knowing, or having to know why.
