OUT – OF – USE!?

The form of vessels might change over time depending on technology, ease of use, fashion and imagination, but can the essence, the fundamental function, of these vessels also become obsolete?

Specific production methods might become obsolete at varying times in different socio-economic contexts but we still need to produce some kind of hollow form to hold our food and drink.

In the context of this project the term 'site' is to be interpreted in a very lateral way: the moulds themselves serve as a site to explore transitions of function whilst the display strategy plays with the context and associations of 'the glass cabinet' and 'the table top': from 'in use' to 'out of use'!?
