Hacked Electric Kettle with Whistle, 2021
Hacked Breville Kettle, silicon rubber, aluminium, Alessi Harmonica Pitch Pipes, acrylic paint, staples
30 x 26 x 11cm

The whistling kettle was rendered obsolete

by the growing electrification of the world, circa 1920,

so we've hacked a kettle, making it boil forever and

gave it a kettle whistle, so you know when to turn it off.

You're welcome.
