SHORT C.V / STATEMENT

sunt un cârlig de rufe.
imi place asta foarte mult...sunt chiar mândru de statutul meu.
jobul meu este pe cât de simplu pe atât de important.
țin strâns ceva care poate fi aproape orice de un suport de uscat.
fie el o simplă sfoară legat între 2 copaci sau un uscător multifuncțional complicat de la ikea.
sunt o persoana care dă siguranță.
fac o legatură fară de care efortul întregului univers ar putea fi ruinat la o singură bătaie de vânt.
sau cel puțin așa îmi place mie să cred.
există multe feluri de cârlige de rufe...
și aici ca în orice alt lucru calitatea materialului contează.
ca și designul.
sunt revoltat când uneori un pic malițios sunt comparat cu un om.
mai precis cu un barbat.
#"a daily, mundane, banal object, which we all seem to posses, though we rarely look at"
#the ‘silent servants’
#an object so basic yet so useful,
that has the quality of serving many functions in
addition to it's original one. it can be used to hang
stuff, to hold, to fasten, endless number of
uses, almost as versatile as the office clip.
#an object that crosses cultural
and geographical boundaries, we all have the same
need, most of us solve the problem in a similar way.
#one would have expected the pegs to disappear,
with the appearance of the drying machines, but they
have survived the technological change
# it is fascinating to observe the endless
variations on such a simple basic concept.
#the whole issue of the relationship between form and function,
user and use, style, shape, adornment, engineering,
production, technical and structural solutions - all can
be observed, looking at clothes pegs.
# we have noted some of the categories of change or
variations, such as visual typology, style and attempts
to ‘uplift’ the product an it's design, structure or the
mechanical principle, materials, functional interpretations
(such as ‘locking’ pegs), visual mutations, cultural
reflections, such as the chinese bamboo peg, bearing
the family name on it, to distinguish it in a communal space,
or the huge japanese carpet peg.
