Distorted, glitchy 3D-Printed Silberbesteck

Ich liebe den 3D-Dekonstruktivismus von Eragatory, den’s auch als praktisches Silberbesteck gibt, mit dem man prima den Familienbesuch irritieren kann. Ich esse mein Steak demnächst nur noch mit Glitch. Die Teile kann man normalerweise bei Shapeways bestellen, deren Website ist aber derzeit abgesoffen.

Key elements while designing this set was the notion of decay/processing, ornamental and aesthetic excess as in former rococo and barock times, moments of collapse/disequilibrium and a balance in between etiquette dining and painful torture tools. By subverting the logic of perfection and beauty, non-perfect images coming from controlled methodologies were generated.

What used to be about mastering the result of a non-perfect process is now about the production of monstrosity and the grotesque throughout very accurate mechanisms, like 3d printing. Which creates an unlimited range of possibilities concerning material usage, design approaches/aesthetics and form production.
