B:01.A (Bench)

Price

$1.00

 

The "Amoeba Benches" were originally designed and fabricated for Kindness & Mischief Cafe located in Highland Park Los Angeles in January of 2023. Placed on their public sidewalk patio, part of the design intention was centered around accessibility of many different body types and forms, not limited to a one-size-fits-all type of seating. Each handmade bench also features locking 3-inch rolling casters for ease of movement. 

 

Series: 'Factory Nail Salon' 

 

Series Info:

The designs and concepts in the ‘Factory Nail Salon’ series are inspired by and directly related to my original “Lil Tuff Chunk” (2022) object. This object and the others in this series are the beginning of my ongoing exploration into the aesthetic and cultural roots of my blue-collar familial upbringing. 

To be more specific - My father worked as a mechanic at the Ford River Rouge Factory Complex in Detroit Michigan for over 30 years, while my Mother worked as a manicurist in our small basement DIY nail salon. These object concepts are exploring the aesthetic and metaphorical links between those two worlds. In one sense, the worlds could not be farther apart from each other. While in another, they share not only unintentional utilitarian beauty via industrial and pragmatically minded creations, but also socioeconomic similarities surrounding the reality of middle-class financial income obligations.
