Max Lupo’s Objects of Note takes all of the things you never knew you wished you had, and puts them in one place. Are you your own worst enemy? Do you need a portable confidence booster? Are you disturbingly lonely while sitting around the house? These, and many other essential human dilemmas can all be solved by an Object of Note!
The devices on view present themselves as an object waiting to be touched, and it is through the user’s interaction that the limit of the device’s functionality is revealed. Together the viewer and artist will find that what the objects purport to do is both a very real reality, and an obvious sham.
Pictured at the top of this post is the new set of Automatic Affirmation Devices, I hope you can make it to see them!
