hanging shelf = art + practicality

Ian McDonald

We stumbled on this wonderful hanging shelf on You Have Been Here Sometime, but when we went back to look it was gone! It’s from an exhibition by Ian McDonald called Wearing.

In our minds it’s art = a shelf = art = a shelf = wonderful to look at = practical = odd =art = a shelf….

The gist is really a wood slab and rod bored with holes through which to run rope or wire, elaborated on with a big metal ring, a hanging counterweight and the rod that sticks up for no apparent reason (which we love). It made us want to hunt down odd bits and start rigging them…
