This was the first piece I completed during the initial days of the Covid 19 pandemic quarantine order.  It is a continuation of my absurdist “Counterfeit Antiques” theme, and an attempt to process some of the angst of that moment.  “Social Distancing” was the phrase on everyones lips, and there was great anxiety around coming into contact with other people.  This tool was a joke suggesting an extreme level of assistance with ordinary tasks that suddenly seemed dangerous (like handshakes, and touching doorknobs).
