Occasional Earthquake Table (2013)

The Occasional Earthquake Table is an inoffensive small table which reacts to any earthquake occurrence in real time.

Constantly monitoring – it shakes, rumbles and vibrates based on live earthquake data: magnitude, depth, duration and proximity to populous areas.

Teacups rattle and sometimes get ejected and smashed on the floor.

The table brings the delicate balance of the earth’s tectonic plates into your living room, and serves as a intermittent reminder of our place on this violent globe.
