The Curious Chairs of Joyce Lin

Texas-based artist and designer Joyce Lin is passionate about making interactive sculptures and functional objects as a mode of exploration and play. She works with a wide range of mediums including wood, metal, plastics, and upholstery to create surrealist objects that explore questions about material and form and the ever-shifting relationship between humans and their environment. Here we’d like to focus on her chairs, with one of my favorite, the Exploded Chair where she dismantle a simple wooden chair and places its pieces in clear plexiglass containers to recreate the chair itself. Lovely!
