Abstract COVER STORY: British-born artist Simon Starling's sculptures—homemade replicas of Eames chairs, a functioning model airplane, a reconfigured Fiat—"always look good," observes Artforum contributing editor Daniel Birnbaum. For Starling, however, objects are just the final outcome of a process that encompasses research, travel, and self-delegated tasks like purchasing balsa wood in Ecuador or transporting rhododendrons from Scotland to Spain. In works that investigate the failed progressive ideals of twentieth-century design and in more recent projects that directly address issues of politics and nationality, Starling maps complex, interconnected physical and cultural histories.
