Dietrich Wegner is an Australian born scultper, best known for his series work, Brand Tattooed Babies. The Cumulous Brand pieces are powerful representations of our brand saturated environment. What is the true extent of brand messaging and what effect do these messages have on those who are most impressionalble, children? 

His more recent works, seek to foreground ideas about eterntity and in particular the notion that nothing lasts forever. Our world is transient in nature; technology, environment, humanity - Whereby what we once see, may no longer be. Wegner explains: “A contradiction exists between what our eyes enjoy and what our mind knows. With this conflicting experience, I aim to evoke our curiosity and our unstable assumptions”
