The table-non-table (tnt) is a exploration of slow technology in the home and everyday designers. The aluminum chassis is stacked with paper, while underneath, two .5 rpm motors will turn on for less then ten seconds every couple of hours. The goal of the movement is to be so infrequent and slow that you don't even notice it. The tnt lives with families for months at a time, as they journal their everyday experiences with it. For more information, check out the link to the left.

Above and Below, you can see different states of stacked paper on the tnt.
