Period & Style

Jill Townsley's massive Spoons was exhibited in Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary, the inaugural exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design's new home at 2 Columbus Circle. As shown in this video, Jill and a small army of helpers constructed the piece on-site over the period of a week with the intention that, once put together, the piece would slowly fall apart. Over the few months the exhibition was open to the public at MAD, the piece did begin it's inevitable decay, but it didn't quite destroy itself. So, after the exhibition closed, we brought in some special assistants to help Spoons reach its 'ultimate configuration.'
