Now, this really made me smile when I came upon it the other day... Peg art! What is it about the humble peg? And why, actually, do we even think this ingenious device is so humble? I don't think anyone could dismiss them quite so readily once they saw Martin Huberman's amazing installation, Tender.
Working for an Argentinean design and architecture office, Normal™ studio, one of Huberman's design objectives is to explore what is thought of as 'normal' and playing with accepted social parameters to find everyday beauty. Huberman's idea for the Tender project uses repetition to create a composition that transforms the original object. Apparently, every installation has been markedly different because the composition reacts with the different rooms in its own way... ceiling heights, space, light levels all work to transform the work. I like that - I like the organic nature it suggests to our little functional friend :)
