BUY-SELL - you like you buy - my recent 3d calligraphic work, supporting first plantings of Pyrethrum Daisy (self-sown seedlings) and local indigenous native Plectranthus parviflorus Mint. The syllabogram is in common to both Chinese and Japanese text, i understand. Keep posted for a progress photo.. Made to Order : {

EAR STAND. (prototype) Inspired by the Chinese calligraphic character for “EAR” the device can be a read, felt, smelt and moved but embodies contradictions and unsatisfied desires. It is a counter intuitive play of use and practicality - bulky but open, spatially open but heavy, with charcoal edged that would mark and stain clothing. It can be a typographic error. It is a cry for freedom by the oppressed. It can be a crushing machine, a clothes press, the carbon crisis and carbon sink, a luddite low technology configuration, an impossible wheelbarrow and luggage rack. [version 1 of 3 different pieces]
