The text below is from Lixfeld:

Metamorphose Spoons, designed by Alexa Lixfeld is a one-of-a-kind collector’s item, an installation of 13 unique silver spoons.

Some of them develop into forks. The becoming of the spoon stands for the developing female, while the transforming into the fork stands for the developing male.

It is a visualization of developing gender realized in fine silver cutlery. Metamorphose – porcelain vessel. Handmade vessels made of solid coloured porcelain, outside matt, inside glazed.

Composition of nine different shapes, available in eight colours. Showcase the process-based development of contemporary design - the interplay of computer aided design / CAD and traditional craftsmanship.

    The new Uri Geller!

    I know a guy who made the same thing to those spoons using only the power of mind. His name is Uri Geller…

    Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.

    What truth?

    There is no spoon.

    There is no spoon?

    Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

  • The developing male and female? Oh come on…

  • I’m enjoying the scene in my mind where the designer and her friends sit down to a meal using her new utensils— everyone is murmuring things like “nice” and “beautiful pieces” and food is falling all over the table and floor, down people’s fronts…

    Can the oracle tell me how do I put that spoon in my mouth?
