Geometric Mouse: Scale D is called “home-made” because it is a white cardboard reproduction (2/3 smaller) of the prototype made in preparation for the fabricated black metal Scale C Mouse. It is imprinted with reproductions of the artist’s notations and signature, and it was intended to be an unlimited edition, but it was only produced once in 1971 when only 3,000 were manufactured. Packaged within plastic shrink-wrap to look like a consumer item, the Scale D Mice were meant to circulate with other real commodities and infiltrate society much like real household mice.
