critical making

Beanstalk Modular Table


So what is consummated and consumed is never the object but the relationship itself, signified yet absent, simultaneously included and excluded; it is the idea of the relationship that is consumed in the series of objects that displays it. Through critical making, this table combines 3D design principles and materials-lead creation by combining an exisiting man-made artifact with natural materials. Old and new materials are echoed in traditional and modern techniques; the wooden shelves are made from pine and shaped by both hand tools and CNC wood router. Additional pieces are affixed without the use of glue or fasteners to maintain the modular integrity of the original shelving system.
