Flip-Flop On a Stick


A series of five short video studies of the imagined potential uses for the Flip-Flop On a Stick, a seemingly absurdist object discovered in a marketplace in Quiapo, Manila.It’s basically a child-size flip-flop, attached to a rattan stick.

Presumably used for swatting unfortunate insects, this curious object fascinates not merely because it exists, but because it provokes deep curiosity about the logic and reasoning behind its initial conception.
