The opening question in any serious empirical research is "Will it blend?" But here's a German artist who felt that her art should begin with a slightly different question: "How will it blend?"
In her series Nicht Klotzen, Sondern Kleckern Sarah Illenberger assembled a collection of slick European blenders, hand mixers and stick blenders and put each one to use as a brush in a different painting. I'm no art critic, but I'm gonna say the hand mixers were the most aesthetically pleasing, while the big tabletop Bosch was pretty much a bust. The real question is, what gear should Illenberger use to paint with next? [Today and Tomorrow]
