van der meulens atelier draws attention to ordinary and obliterated matters. _for crimmp_17, the carpenter's pencil and the clothes peg combine their specific qualities in a new product: the pinchpencil. _the party leadership of vandermeulens-sales department is proud of its productive capacity: week after week, the goals were achieved; box after box filled up with pencils, equipped with the characteristic pinch-clamp mechanism, produced according to traditional methods. _but the demand was disappointing, and the warehouse got packed because common people didn't seem to need pinchpencils. _the vdm-management expressed the hope that the ocw-attendees might know how to handle a proper pinchpencil. _not in vain. _twenty-eight pieces made their way to the audience.
