Smashing the marble table top

If there was a clear defining moment in this year's major project, it was today; the marble table tops were smashed with a sledgehammer. Imagined as part of the product experience, the ritualistic process of breaking and rebuilding symbolizes the irrevocable decisions we make in order to bring about transformation and change. The project recruited chief technician Paul and Level 2 student Ellie, to participate in this moment. Paul used a dramatic over-the-shoulder swing to smash the marble, and Ellie used multiple delicate taps with the sledgehammer to create this moment of transformation. The final exhibit will feature 3 tables; one that has not yet been broken, one that has been deconstructed and the marble kept broken, and one that has completed it's transformation.
