Calamity - James Lear
15"h x 11"w x 11"d
This series of steel pails is part of the Flaw and Function project. The objective is to look into the relationship between damage and function as well the potential to manufacture unique goods. Borrowing the proportions of a conventional waste basket, each pail is compressed with a twenty-ton hydraulic press to varying degrees. The nuance of each pail’s destruction determines its final appearence. Currently in the showroom.
