Imagine taking a bicycle pump and with it blowing a traditional bowl up into a swollen object where the bowl shape barely exists anymore. The former shape is still present but only hinted at.
I ask myself if the object remains a bowl after this sequence of events, or does the now less practical function turn it into a sculpture.
Since this new sculptural state also has a function, this process is a way of transforming the object from having one function to another.
My degree project investigates the transformation of material and functions. It is a deep dive into the compliance requirements of contemporary design and where my work is situated within that field. I have examined the fine line between sculpture and functional object in the context of a Baroque table setting. The functional objects will be used by a fine dining target group, where the sculptural and visual experience plays an important role in the serving.
