A survey of contemporary sculpture, published to coincide with the opening of London's new Saatchi Gallery, draws on influences from H.G. Wells and Stanley Kubrick while making predictions about how sculpture will evolve in the coming decades.

The objects presented are derived from every conceivable material and vary from abstract arrangements to re-configurations of everyday forms in magnificent transformations of the mundane, such as giant electric sockets, to the recurring theme of the human body.
