Tool box

There is no irony in Karen Price's work. For her the question of form and use of designed objects is one that can be played out with domestic tools. Objects need not be restricted to what they were orginally designed or intended. The performativity of a tool is not fixed but alters according to the time and space it is used in, thereby rendering users as authors/designers, function is fluid - repositioned by a particular use. Tools that sit redundant can be reappropriated and thus consumption curtailed.
