| A parody of a MIT hack. The title "no knife" has further significance when made into origami. The original hack was an 'art piece' found in an MIT gallery, and its caption read:
"NO KNIFE "A study in mixed media earth tones, number three. "Realized by James Tetazoo. December 1984. "The artist's mode d'emploi relies upon minimalist kinematic methods; space and time are frozen in a staid reality of restrained sexuality. Temporary occasionalism, soon overcome throughout by symbolic nihility, pervades our earliest perception of the work. An overturned throwaway obelisk functions as symbolic pedestal; the work rests upon a manifestation of grey toned absence. Epicurean imagery is em- ployed most effectively by Tetazoo; the glass, the porcelain, the plastic move in conflicting directions and yet are joined in a mood of stark pacifism. The sterile lateralism of the grouped utensils (sans knife), Conveys a sense of eternal ennui, framed within the subtle ambience of discrete putrefaction. The Casual formalism of the place setting draws upon our common internal instinct of existential persistence to unify us with the greater consciousness of human bondage."
my rendition is but a humble shadow of that grand masterpiece; but we're just keeping the spirit alive...
