Semi-Domesticated Volcanoes

12 Apr

Housekeeping has a new natural enemy in the form of Nelly Ben Hayoun‘s semi-domesticated volcanoes – AWESOME!

These volcanoes take the unpredictable aggravation of the full-size version and package it in only a fraction of the space making them perfect for your living room. According to Hayoun they “are large, imposing, and extremely inconvenient – erupting dust and gloop into the living room of the volunteers seemingly at random.” So I guess my ex boyfriend or either of my cats would deliver the same results, but without the cool name.

The miniature volcanoes were developed in collaboration with pyrotechnics designer Austin Houldsworth and volcanologist Dr Carina Fearnley and aim to explore the ideas around domesticating nature for entertainment purposes.
