I like the immediacy and the continuity of narrative that happens when I capture an image and then post it. However, I had wanted to make a visit to Designfenzider’s studio before I left NYC, and wasn’t able to make it so they kindly sent me images of some of their work.
They illustrate a specific point of view of the everyday object. The Candlestick Maker transforms the function of an object to make itself functional.
My favorite are the Still Life Frames (check out their website). Framing something in itself is the act of creating. One clarifies and composes a world into a self contained area. Framing something says that the thing inside of this defined space is different from that which is outside of it.
