PlueerSmitt approach the notion of utopia by exploring the appearance of surfaces as primary interface to assign an object’s purpose. Bench No. 2 consists of a steel skeleton, which has been coated with zirconium oxide, a technical ceramic used for both industrial surface-enhancing ‘nano’ coatings and organic tissue replacement for teeth or bones.
By way of displacement, the material’s primary function is exposed and turned into an interface to probe our perception of appearance
and function.
