The Richard Wilson plastic body sculptures are really amazing. But the rubbish space by Tomoko Takahashi needs an explanation before seeing it, otherwise it is a bit strange. It's a fine line between inspiration and bullshit.

The central work by Takahashi is great, but I've seen three or four people do that kind of thing before. There are a lot of Goldsmiths Art College people, which is normal for Saatchi. I was wondering if because he is selling quite a lot of work he would be moving away from Goldsmiths. But this is slightly braver work than some of his more obvious collections.

It's chaotic but there is order to it. The rubbish piece by Takahashi I liked. I think the rubbish is open to so many meanings; a lot of it doesn't work or has been manipulated not to work. Maybe it is commenting on chaos and organisation. I also like the spaceship made with kitchen utensils by Brian Griffiths, just because it was really nostalgic; everything it uses I can remember.

I like the whole exhibition. It reminds me of how art doesn't need to be stuffy. I especially enjoyed the Paul Smith photographs; the ones of him out on a drunken evening, he gets so right. I didn't really like his Army ones. There is a lot more going on in the night-time photographs; the people and the colours used are very interesting. Whereas the Army is outside and camouflaged and looks a lot more set up - much more like snapshots.
