Volume of Symbiosis
Ho Chung-Tang's 'Volume of Symbiosis' reminds me of those 3-D pin toys that were all the rage in junior high. Only Tang's version is much bigger, acts as a bookshelf...and seems to work in reverse. By pushing in the wooden blocks, you create a space that's perfectly molded to all your little treasures. I'm sure it's a pain to get the blocks flush again, but hey, how often do you really take the books off the shelf anyway? It's much more important to have the coolest shape-shifting piece of furniture around.
