Hose Clamp by Gerardo Gonzalez
My work is based on multi-functional wearable sculpture; by incorporating mechanisms that surround our everyday lives, it not only functions as the object intended but it also serves the wear ability aspect of the piece. I created this piece based on the object in the apartment that reminded me of a human body part. Therefore, I chose to use one of the heat pipes for the installation. The piece functions aesthetically as a hose clamp and when removed it functions as both a ring and a bracelet.
