    Science Of The Secondary: Apple

    $20.00

    With 'Apple' as the subject of the first publication from the research programme 'Science of the Secondary', Atelier HOKO presents an inquiry into our behaviours and experiences observed through our interaction with the humble fruit. From the very moment we set our eyes on the apples that are displayed in the fruit stall to the strangely familiar memory of an apple within us, this book offers an alternative insight into things that are not yet discovered.

    Science Of The Secondary: Banana

    $20.00

    SCIENCE OF THE SECONDARY: BANANAby Atelier HOKO* "With its near-phallic shape stirring in most fully-grown adults sexual imageries condemned by many religious and proper people, the banana remains a highly popular fruit enjoyed by millions around the world. Large scale farming has made the tropical fruit accessible almost all year round and in most countries, so much so that it is rare to come across anyone who is completely unaware of this iconic fruit. Popularity aside, it is perhaps import...

    Science Of The Secondary: Clock

    $20.00

    "In general, there are two different kinds of clocks. The first tells time in the form of a common factor that most of us can relate to, a concept of ‘time’ that is shared in order for a social and ordered life to be lived with one another. Then, there is another ‘clock’ that is neither time nor instrument but a continuous stream of rhythm that flows through each and everyone of us. Between these two, which clock have you been using daily?" Science of the Secondary: Clock is the third edition...

    Science Of The Secondary: Cup

    $20.00

    But what does it mean to drink? Do we drink with our skin when the hands are hugging the cup? Are we drinking with our body posture while sipping earl grey in a tearoom? Are the ears drinking as we take each sip of coffee? Can we consider the act of licking one’s lips drinking? Does the nose know that it is drinking as it hovers above the caramelized milk froth sitting atop a very large cup of coffee?Magazine: 52 Pages Product Dimensions: 176 x 250 mmISBN: 9789810798765Published by Atelier HOKO

    Science Of The Secondary: Door

    $20.00

    For the first instalment of a building-centric research initiative under the Science of the Secondary series, the common Door, Window and Pipe were chosen as starting points towards an inquiry into the openings of a dwelling.

    Science Of The Secondary: Egg

    $20.00

    Ever since the egg has been perverted as a rich and readily available source of food for human beings, we have not thought much of it beyond its role in our diet. An altogether loathsome person was once overheard commenting (with complete disregard for the minuscule strength of a chick) that the brittleness of eggshells is meant for the convenience of the human hand. To allow a faint glimmer in the gloom of ignorance, we must begin to become conscious of the subtleties within each egg. Scienc...

    Science Of The Secondary: Plate

    $20.00

    "In spite of the plate’s supposed ubiquity, very little is known and discussed of this practical tableware beyond fine craftsmanship or pretty decorations. While the use of plates has long since settled comfortably in our everyday, our daily interactions with the plate are often ‘from a distance’ since we almost never have to touch it throughout an entire meal; not especially during one dominated by presumptuous conversations around magnificent tableware that exists only to impress the shallo...

    Science of the Secondary: Sock

    $20.00

    Among the many clothing types in our wardrobe, none leads a more unappreciated existence than the sock. Wavering between undergarment and outerwear, the staggering amount of pressure and force applied to the sock each time we take a step forward attests to its silent resilience. It is thus, not without irony, that the common definition of quality socks lies precisely in how little we take notice of its presence; a good pair of socks becomes one that is absent when worn on the feet...Magazine:...

    Science Of The Secondary: Toilet Paper

    $20.00

    "The life of toilet paper is fundamentally short-lived; smeared with shit and left to disintegrate in smelly water, it is found in almost every toilet as a sign of hygienic assurance. Even though its absence is a major cause of panic amongst toilet users, the toilet roll remains a lowly object and ever so often, a cause for embarrassment or awkward giggles when encountered or merely mentioned. Considering how excreting faeces is an everyday affair for all, such sentiments towards a roll of ti...
