girls for boys 2008 - nikki majajas

I have taken inspiration from the most practical of items: the humble toolbox and its contents. Here are 3 mini stories that play with the themes of usefulness and identity. Nine wearable objects serve valuable functions such as finding direction, measuring small distances or assessing surface level. One series acts to classify the wearer as belonging to a manly and practical club where a screw head or a bolt identifies their organisation. Then again chunky bands, which can be worn as rings or pendants double as tools and when stacked, create a handy trio of DIY essentials, inspired in part by Swiss army knives.
