The Technophallus: 

LeafBlowers, precarious manhood and how design can transform the discourse (graphic novel)


The project 'Chaoses of the everyday' generated a number of interesting concepts for developing into a narrative. The graphic novel provided a framework for taking these conversations further, proposing a potential script inspired by the 'double-protagonist' dynamic in film. In these scripts, two characters (often male) compete for dominance and heroism.


The document encompasses a piece of writing extending the exploration of contemporary gender roles influenced by the design of power tools like the Leaf Blower and its wider social and ecological impacts.
