Make/Use is a series of objects that are made to be functional as tools for everyday life. The idea of functionality is used here as a frame to explore typologies of objects and to discover their performative potentials. The idea of a “performative object” aims to manipulate designed functionality to disrupt the experience and thus cause mindfulness in use. For this exhibition, it consists of site-specific wall hooks, book ends, and a door stop.

 

 

$65 for readymade pair, $115 for custom-made.

These items are unique and will vary in finish.

 

This work is part of the show Artists' Tools, on view at Special Special, spring 2020.
