Don’t we all know the feeling? Building yourself a save space, hidden behind the save walls you built for yourself. Don’t we all hide our vulnerabilities, don’t we all protect ourselves from getting hurt?
These rubber objects try to explore the objectification of this topic by hiding your vulnerability with nails, meanwhile risking to hurt yourself! How do we know what we want? And even if we do know, how would we know what is good for us? What do you need to be protected from? And why do we want to pretend that we’re strong, even if we don’t feel that way?
The porcelain top exposes this same contradiction of protection combined with vulnerability. The armer gives you this fake sense of protection, while the material is susceptible to damage.
Both the product provides you with a superficial feeling of security, but any small attempt of breaking it, leaves the product damaged and your heart broken.
