Tools for Problems Real and Imagined is a collection of furniture and tool-like objects that play with the idea of functionality by inventing solutions for problems that don’t exist, and carrying solutions for real problems to absurd or impossible ends. Both fanciful and impractical, the pieces invite the viewers to imagine equally fanciful contexts and potential applications.
Katie Hudnall (b. 1979, Alexandria VA) builds otherworldly, interactive furnitural objects that behave in expected and unexpected ways. She received an M.F.A. in woodworking/furniture design from Virginia Commonwealth University and a B.F.A. in Sculpture from the Corcoran College of Art in Washington, DC. She lives and works in Indianapolis, IN, where she is an Assistant Professor of Furniture Design at Herron School of Art & Design. To learn more about Katie’s work visit katiehudnall.com.
