The Slab is a black square with aluminum inside. It can be bent and shaped into any desirable form. It comes with a video to explain. This early work is about the make-able world, it seems so easy and joyous, but never anything really comes out as intended.
The video hints at infomercials (tel sell) such as 'amazing discoveries' which was a series of infomercials in the nineties; everything seems amazing and effortless while in reality things never work that way
