Vessel: Framing Nothing
Cornell University Design III (Fall 2011)
Assignment: to create an object at the human scale that enhances the hidden qualities of the provided tool (spatula)
The inspiration for the Dwelling, this project is a view framing device that reorients the spatula to become a mirror. Showing signs of ware, the spatula becomes a distorted mirror for the viewer.
Upon inserting the spatula in the tracks and sliding it up into view, a thin wooden door is pushed up. Only once the spatula is removed can the opening be understood as another frame: a view to what is beyond.
