This Is A Safety Pin

Tonik Wojtyra
Paper, Metal Safety Pin
7 × 7 cm

Safe because its sharp tip is shielded when the pin is closed. Made

of rigid but flexible metal & operated by squeezing its parallel

sides inwards. Also known as fibula. Historically from the

Mycenaeans circa 14th century B.C.. “Invented” in hot July of

1849 by American Walter Hunt. Bested into art by Marcel Duchamp in

1918 via his largest & final painting Tu m’. Impolitic to exalt

only Richard Hell for its 70s punk rise; pat-on-the-bum for Vivienne

Westwood, high five. Nice & cheap & chic & sublime & safe &

D.I.Y.. Friend, you have the whole world in your hands.
