"domestic machinery" by Mark Sturkenboom

domestic4

From the artist: “Domestic Machinery is a reaction on the reversion on pre-industrial craftsmanship; in this case knitting. Domestic Machinery acts as a conversation piece. It shows one of the most useless occupations in a new way. It is not the result which is important in Domestic Machinery but the process. Place your critter in the wheel and encourage the animal in a friendly manner to run. The machine will then knit a small cable. Results may vary.”
