Ash - Spring 2010
The Branded Chair became a way to revisit the Deconstructed Chair. This time around, the materials would be limited, the setting would be predetermined, and there would be firm rules in place. An invitation was extended to my classmates. They would have to leave twenty-five percent of the chair unharmed and at least twenty-five percent of it charred. The participants had objections to the rules and questions as to whether my involvement in the ‘event’ was too strongly felt. My fear was that this Branded Chair would become a second ‘Deconstructed Chair’, and would prove a regression within the development of the Degree Project. I justified my decision to implement more stringent ‘variables’, realizing the importance of clear communication within a group of working individuals.
