One of One
One of One alters the aesthetic design of a product each time one is sold through parametric design and digital manufacture. While still a product of mass manufacture, each product that is produced is unique.
This idea stemmed from a carriage clock gifted to me by my Grandmother. The carriage clock has immense value through its association with our family history - however after seeing the exact same carriage clock at the New York Maker Faire the realisation that my carriage clock was just another product of mass manufacture immediately devalued the significance this object as an object of value.
One of One explores the modern equivalent of the carriage clock, the wrist watch. With this idea I am asking myself if this object will have more inherent value simply by adjusting the appearance of it to be unique, one of one, and essentially irreplaceable. Maybe.
