Turning the pages of this catalog of graphic work and photographs is like trying to make sense out of the stream of caffeine-induced blather that resounds throughout art school hallways. But it may well be worth the effort to grasp the visual jokes and puns endlessly scattered about these pages. Eatock takes seemingly mundane photographs constantly, the way other artists sketch out the ideas that tumble into consciousness; many of the photos are the kind of random, incongruous, or bizarre street situations that we all pass unheedingly every day. Eatock is fascinated with goofy signage, garbage, the holes pigeons peck out of bread, sidewalk stencils, and the possibility that malfunctioning car alarms are really raves waiting for ravers. Scattered through all this are some more formal graphic projects like logotypes and corporate symbols. Along with the skimpy, interview-style text, the imagery is a good portrait of a hot young designer teetering on the line between smart and smart-ass. Get it now while he's still hot. Best for art libraries.
