A self-proclaimed bricoleur, Tom Sachs engages with high art, disposable consumer culture, and everything in between. Critiquing the speed and regularity with which a materialistic society replaces commodities, Sachs uses both a profusion of commercial icons in his work and builds his own functioning versions of consumer goods using re-purposed items, such as the glossy, black Prada Toilet (1997), a workable toilet constructed out of Prada’s up-market packaging, with the company’s logo prominently displayed on the sculpture. Sachs’s works are emphatically process-oriented, an expression of the artist’s DIY spirit, divulging even the flaws of his complex and labor-intensive projects. On ongoing theme in Sachs' work is outer space. He has said that "NASA is the ultimate status symbol in technology, the highest technology."
