Rebuilt Braun Coffee Maker 1991
In building Crate House, I isolated each of the human activities, eating, sleeping, bathing and recreating. Rebuilt Braun Coffee Maker” investigates and expands one small piece of Crate House. I removed any element from the manufactured coffee maker that interfered with our ability to see the process of making coffee. I isolated the water storage element, the coffee filter holder, the heating element, the electrical contacts, the switch, etc. and reassembled the parts leaving gaps between the elements. I built a carrying case that looks like a cross between a Thomas Edison invention and a crate.
