    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

Product Design Careers

There couldn't be a better time to be a product designer. Time Magazine reported that product design is one of the 15 hottest professions in terms of job growth and compensation. Product design has many of the same advantages as the more traditional creative professions. But the higher demand for product designers across a wider variety of industries means they are generally better compensated and have more employment opportunities. Today, there is an unprecedented demand for a new breed of product designer that has the creativity and skills to integrate technology into various types of consumer products, and to design for different industries. Never before has there been so much opportunity for the product designer to choose not only what to design or who to design for. The Product design graduate's diverse and rewarding career path is as wide as it is long. Many types of industries employ product designers, and the list is constantly growing.
