The show is a collection of Arthur Simmons' rebuilt and customized phones, which take on strange and wonderful personas. Some are built into radios, some into toy trucks, some onto long planks, and one called Don't Hang Up has the receiver cradled in a noose.

"Each person and every object has its angel, which is simply its spirit or essence" With this in mind, grunt has received a vast cross-section of interpretations of angels and their meanings. As angels are messengers between the sprititual and earthly realms so are artists the mediators between the ideal and the real. The nature of the submissions will be as varied and mysterious as the nature of angels themselves.

Any collassemblage artist is essentially a trash collector. Collecting modern-day trash means collecting a lot of plastic and plastic has three great drawbacks as objet d'art: it is not intrinsically beautiful as paper and wood, it has no grain, no organic fibres; nor does it weather in interesting ways as wood or metal, it doesn't acquire patina only a bunch of scratches. Plastics also come in a fairly limited range of garish colours.
