Et Tu the Valet: developed from a traditional european ‘valet’ stand with a calligraphic brushstroke merging the Australian Aboriginal icon of the ‘boomerang’ and the Kiwi ‘hei matau’ fish hook motives. The Stand then catches clothes thrown in effect to a valet butler, waiting sartorially at the foot of your bed, or office boardroom…

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]
