Tom Sachs is a contemporary American artist whose work both addresses and participates in the fetishization of consumer culture. Employing various materials, such as foam core, bronze plywood glue automotive paint he often reconstructs luxurious or iconic brands from history or popular culture which have been subject to commercialization for long periods than any other form has existed with many people feeling they can no longer afford them even though these items might be considered luxuries by others around us but not theirs due to their circumstances. In one of his most famous exhibitions “Space Program”, artists created a life-sized replica model lunar module made entirely out of steel that weighed over two tons!
