Our friend Charles McFarlane, who attends highschool in New York City, sent us this astonishing photo in an email… “Recently my friend hurt her wrist. Our teacher, whose father is a hand surgeon, rigged this up for my friend until she could get to the doctor.”
Stainless steel ruler + rubber gloves (or are they balloons?) = an ingenious splint, and to our eye, a strangely fabulous sculpture.
