Fear.Less: Daniel Ting & Jordan Metcalf

Fear.Less is a collaborative project between Daniel Ting Chong & Jordan Metcalf. The objects are all representative of weapons/items used in acts of crime in South Africa, both by criminal and the law. More pictures here (and a few of my favorites below).

The objects seek to playfully examine the place of fear and crime in South Africa context, framing our obsession with violence and the casual paranoia we all seem to suffer from. By scaling the objects and turning them into artworks, the artists aim to re-contextualise the place these items hold in our everyday lives.

Puma Blackout

BLACKOUT 1

Lovely table tennis table by Puma. Available in the Conran Shop for $1900. Designed by the genius team at Aruliden.

The overall graphic impact, evoked through the distinctive silhouette and angular black ash wood legs, add the sophistication of furniture to an iconic game often overlooked and undervalued. BLACKOUT elevates the former basement novelty to the conversation piece in any environment, allowing those late night hours to happen beyond the local dive bar to our favorite social spaces.
