设计师Ernesto D. Morales表示： “我之前就开始从事荒诞主义发明实践。我曾想：如果我自带工具检查这顿饭会怎样呢？我当时刚好拿着勺子，所以就对这把勺子进行了重新构想。”这把勺子用玻璃片和不锈钢制作而成，借助了墨西哥城一位透镜制造商和珠宝商的帮忙。设计师计划完成全套工具，激发人们对消费文化的思考。
The Magnifying Spoon allows its user to survey the landscape of a meal served at a restaurant, in case ‘foreign objects’ have appeared. On approval, the same tool is used to scoop up a healthy mouthful.
“Since I was already in the practice of proposing absurdist inventions, I thought: what if I’d been equipped with my own tool for pre-inspecting this meal? My spoon was already at hand, so I reimagined it,” says designer Ernesto D. Morales.The spoon was crafted from lens glass and stainless steel with help from a lens maker and a jeweler in Mexico City, and is intended as part of a set of products designed to engage people in questions about consumer culture.
