Non-Tool

  • Non-Tool 

  •  When promted to design a tool that was capable of picking up, cracking and whisking an egg I was fascinated by the hand's relationship to these activities. Removing the involvement of the hand  with a tool was not entirely necessary, because of the simple nature of picking up and cracking an egg. A tool of this nature, that performs such simple tasks is reflective of the excess of immediate gratification and the desire to simplify, while actually making tasks more complex. The objective of a tool is to make a task simpler to perform. This apparatus is the inverse of the tool, lifting, cracking and beating an egg become significantly more difficult while wearing it.
