Sectional Rug

laser-cut plywood offcuts, 2012
88 x 36 x 3.5 inches

Made from individually cut 1/8-inch thick plywood triangles, the modular, interlocking construction of this home accessory ensures that in the case of an emergency, all or part of the floor covering can be burned for fuel.
It responds to beliefs that a cataclysmic event was to occur in December 2012 in addition to the popularization of prepping popularized by reality television.
