American Apparel, London. Guest Post by Jodie Oram

For a window scheme that is in partnership with the Barbican one would expect a rather more creative display, dont you think? This installation it seems was meant to draw reference to Pop Art, a movement that was known for bright, bold colours but sadly this is completely the opposite. The tube lighting looks very cheap and brash, but what I was drawn to predominantly were the standards of the presentation, or rather lack of them; wire has been left hanging from balloons and one can view where they have been previously sellotaped to the floor; many of the balloons are also half deflated.  Sadly, this is exactly the feeling this window has left me with.
