Science of the Secondary: Egg

Atelier Hoko (Author)

Science of the Secondary is an inquisitive approach towards uncovering implicit conditions that exist in our experience of the everyday.

Ever since the egg has been perverted as a rich and readily available source of food for human beings, we have not thought much of it beyond its role in our diet. An altogether loathsome person was once overheard commenting (with complete disregard for the minuscule strength of a chick) that the brittleness of eggshells is meant for the convenience of the human hand. To allow a faint glimmer in the gloom of ignorance, we must begin to become conscious of the subtleties within each egg…"

'Science of the Secondary: Egg’ is the seventh edition in the series of ongoing research conceived and developed by Atelier HOKO.

Atelier Hoko is an independent research lab that focuses on the study of the growing disengagement between people, things and space. The atelier hopes to cultivate in people an openness and ability to un-know, bringing about a heightened curiosity towards all phenomena by taking a fresh look at reality.
