found highchair

30” x 35” x 40”



Another highchair, on contrast with the previous mass produced Ikea model, the construction marks on this object indicate it was crafted, modified, and repaired by many as it probably jumped from owner to owner. I added myself to the list of people who worked on it by refurbishing it only to drop it from a five story building. The broken bits were then re-assembled into new shapes, giving new significance to the same material. From a finished piece of furniture and the performativities that such symbol implies, back to prototypes that point to other possible ways of being.
