The Powerglove is a beloved icon for many children of the 80s. Although only a few games were compatible and it had limited functionality, this ahead of its time toy is a true symbol of a decade defined by futuristic decadence. This piece was a birthday present made for Joe’s friend and frequent collaborating artist Puntington Wig-Wag, an avid Powerglove enthusiast.
A fun mix of form and function; the user smokes through the upward pointing index finger and a 10mm slide can be fitted in to the black controller on top of the glove. The controller is adorned with Joe’s signature Rainbow, Flower of Life, Bee, and three Honeycomb murrine. One of the connections from the controller to the glove hosts a two-hole jet perc.
The back of the piece features a starfish held inside of the hand.
