Faux Tools
2019

In this project, I experiemented with recreating objects in unexpected materials. While tools are often touted, compared, and valued for their hard plasitc/steel durability, these are delicate, playful, and useless. I began by recreating my studio desk which included things like the desk itself, a clock, a stapler, and my computer. I took the idea further by intricately scultping details into hand tools, such as a hammer, combination square, and chisel. The weight of these powerful tools quickly reverse into a light, fragile object that must be handled with care. I experimented with various types of foam from colorful insulation foam, to tooling board, to black foam core for the tool case.
