Hacking The Mould Vase No. 4
Handmade by the innovative Israeli design studio of Noam Dover and Michael Cederbaum, the Hacking the Mould Vase No.4 is a sculptural piece with a poetic metaphor. The object evokes a discourse of our current system that controls knowledge and production worldwide by bringing to light the juxtaposition between maker and hacker culture. During the working process a focus was set on the mold-making phase, perceiving the mold as the vases’ genetic code. First, a standard plaster mold was casted. Then, the mold parts were chiseled out to intervene with the vase’s formalistic characteristics, as if they were blocks of marble in the sculptor’s studio. The chiseling action is interpreted as an act of reclaiming the code of production, meanwhile the plaster mold represents the industrial aspects of the ceramic practice. Finally, stoneware was casted into the mold to form a vase that contains the contrast between the original form and its hack. The Mould Vase No.4 offers a juxtaposition of textures and a conversation piece filled with poetic significance.
