Default Toolbar

Hand formed ceramic
12’ X 6” X 2”
2010

Default Tool bar is a reproduction of the default toolbar that appears when a user opens the program Adobe Photoshop CS3 to use it for the first time. The tools are all sculpted using simple hand methods and are generally the size of the human hand. When included with the shelving unit across the wall, they are entitled “my ideal workspace” which describes the work-space inside of the Photoshop program. “Grey Stack” was placed inside this workspace but still stands as a piece of sculpture away from the wall that can be circumnavigated in 3 dimensions. I made these tools three dimensional to investigate the idea that these virtual tools are designed to go anywhere in the world.
