xsilhouette-cutlery-series_jpeg_pagespeed_ic_VrfJSFyIR8_kleinIn Friday’s postfossil 5-fork-progressions there was a slowfood version with ever-smaller tines, designed to make you appreciate what you have to eat. You might be forgiven for thinking today’s spoons are more of the same. You wouldn’t be wrong in using it as a slotted spoon, though. But it was made to explore perceptions of value, repurposing  and recycling by artist and designer Anneke van Bommel of Toronto, Canada. She presented this work using abandoned vintage cutlery at the Radiant Dark Exhibition, organised by Canadian design product retailer MADE in 2010. The exhibition was titled Assets and Values.
