20/20

A magnetic sculpture created in
response to a year of polarisation

The number 2020 screams tension.
There's an inherent rivalry between its two matching parts.
It sits there waiting to divide.
-
An apt number then for a year that's borne witness to stark divisions.
That's seen, once again, an increasing polarisation of social, economic and political attitudes.

This project, entitled 20/20, attempts to make these forces of polarisation tactile. 
We've cast an object using a combination of magnets and jesmonite.
It's designed to be held, felt and toyed with.
It's split into two smaller parts.
Each twin is a twenty-sided reflection of the other.
-
On first glance they look like they should fit together.
Try to do so and opposing magnetic forces mean they are nearly,
but not quite, impossible to unite. 

A project by Weirdo - a creative agency using diversity and difference for good.
Produced in partnership with designers Matt Perchard & Ella Porter.
If you’re interested in acquiring one of the sculptures please get in touch. 
The edition will be limited to a run of 20.
