Chaos of the Everyday

The Leafblower persists as a contentious object within Western society, yet remains an essential lawn care tool for amateurs and professionals alike.

 

More threateningly than the air and noise pollution it creates is its position within particularly masculine power tool culture and the phallic aggression it poses.

 

'Chaos of the everyday' interrogates this 'technophallus'. It becomes a language for subverting the traditions of 'male' and 'female' spaces by questioning how it may be adapted and applied to other scenarios. It develops new identities interwoven within everyday life and suggests the potential for cathartic experiences.
