When I was waiting for materials for my Hammock, I wanted to make something. I thought I would reverse what I am doing with the hammock, and instead of giving function to the paperclips, stripping that function away. I did this by literally making a box of 100 paperclips functionless by soldering the gaps shut and filing it down to be smooth again. By doing this I created a comment on the uselessness of paperclips due to the rise of the digital age. These functionless paperclip represent all the paperclips left in draws of offices, forgotten thanks to emails and PDFs.
