Modern Dowry Teapot (code by Susan Reiser)
Debt Tea (working title)
This teapot will be in an exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York, opening late June 2017.
The teapot profile is a representation of my monthly debt payments compared to my "savings" or remainder of undesignated funds at the end of each month. The diameter of each concave circle is representative of a debt payment and the convex circle, is the same figure, representing my leftover money after all payments are made each month. Susan Reiser wrote the Processing code to convert the figures to circles that was then turned into the footprint of the teapot.
The teapot will 3D printed in SLS nylon, electroformed copper and plated silver.
