handTools

[W.I.P. Notes]
“handTools” (Scale model versions ::Produced as multiple sets):
Puzzle-like collecting framework of hand tool iconographies. Prototype physical constructions are produced to serve as scalar (play-)testbed models. Constituent playing pieces are individually auctioned, as collectors’ competitive interplays vie for dominant ownership of the fully aggregated assemblage. These scaled down objects serve as proxy antecedents to larger (10x scale) final versions.

handTools” experiments with unique commingling of game theory, psychology (perception and consensus realities), media, and consumer (materialist) economic strategies.
Hopeful outcomes of play testing are observations about:
1) Perceived values, as abstracted and affixed to incentives behind art ownership and/or sale.
2) Relationships between gamesmanship (play) and socio-economic posturing (real-world simulacrum’s effective balancing/mitigating of gameplay motivations and pycho-emotional feedback loops).
3) Scalability; potentially applicable to improved shaping of the final full-scale rendition.
4) Enhanced player/buyer regard for the droit de suite principles and administration.
