International Klein Blue (IKB) is a pigment that was patented by artist Yves Klein in the 1960s. It has become a familiar color, being appropriated within fashion, art and design. This work focuses on the mobile phone case as cultivating desire and taste. The title International and sculptural aesthetics pay tribute to Klein while considering the international economy of both the communicative and art object.
