tsf // The mission of The Silver Factory is to provide top quality art and design tools to those have an inherent creative drive. We believe that art and design must challenge the meanings and values that we attach to our lives, for it is human nature to try and understand the world around us. Only

with knowledge of

our past can we create something new in THE FUTURE. It has the potentail to transform human being and action through it’s multi sensory experience and whilst it becomes an integral part our lives it opens up our horizons for THE FUTURE. We must strive to visualise the invisible and what it must mean to be human in THE FUTURE. //

‘Why Call it The Silver Factory?’ Warhol’s original Factory was often referred to by those who frequented it as the Silver Factory. Covered with tin foil and silver paint by Warhol’s friend Billy Name it was an intelligent art commune;a think tank for the avant-garde. “We were all people that had this divine will welling inside of us saying art, art art, create, create, create. It doesn’t matter what you do, the beauty is in creating something new.” - Billy Name

‘In a world without Gods and Goddesses, celebrity has replaced divinity. Do we create images or do images form us? What is interesting to me about Kate Moss is that she is someone whose image has completely separated from her real self and this image has a life of its own. Our problem is: How do we measure ourselves against the impossible infinite virtual world of perfect images? Yoga, the gym, tattooing, are all ways in which we try to anchor ourselves into our bodies or live up to these images in reaction to the virtual disembodied lives we now currently lead. These hollow bronze sculptures, de-materialized by white paint, are like egg- shells or cinema screens to me, sites for the projection of our desire, twisted mirrors to ourselves.’’Marc Quinn New York, May 2007.
