stacking toy / SHIBULERU / 2013
This is not a toy.
If it were a toy, it would be made from plastic. Instead, this is all-American walnut.
If it were a toy, it would be a slave to batteries. Instead, this only runs on imagination.
If it were a toy, it would be manufactured in China. Instead, this is hand-crafted in San Francisco.
This is not a toy. It is a comment on consumerism and lack of common sense in product related legislation. It could be a toy if it weren't deemed illegal. For that reason, it is art.
