Kitchens & Invaders @ Salone Milan 2015
Kitchens & Invaders at the Museum of Design in the Triennale di Milan, tells of the gradual but inexorable mutation of kitchen utensils into machines and robots.
It takes its inspiration from the science-fiction novel The Body Snatchers, written by Jack Finneyin 1955, and from the film based on the book and directed by Don Siegel. Both have come to be seen as bringing about a break and a transformation in the collective imagination
This is an army of “invaders” which, since the mid-nineteenth century and the advent of industrialisation, has spread out and taken the place of many human activities in the kitchen.
