From Hair-Dryer to Hot-Wire

hair drier, wood, and pink foam
8” x 4” x 8”

By taking apart a hair dryer and turning it into a hot wire, the object becomes able to replicate itself. This foam replica is there to demystify and remind the hair drier what it is actually made of, plastic and cables. Just like a toaster, this mass produced object is composed of very cheap electronics and even cheaper plastic. By exposing the nature of the object, it demystifies itself and other highly manufactured objects, which are often over priced.
