Spent today deconstructing a vacuum cleaner and a Swedish Facit calculator (they were somewhere in between abacus and battery operated hand held devices in the 70s) - and with hundreds and hundreds of pieces and a perfect afternoon in the studio ... played with hybrid forms. Lots of interesting things happen when a material is taken out of its original context and re-imagined. Cogs become scales, armour plating, flower gardens - hoses become defense systems and numeric keys turn into feathers. Experiment. Experiment. Experiment. Plenty of ideas for mark making and fabric too ... great to be getting some "zing" back!
