Make/Use is a series of objects that are made to be functional as tools for everyday life. The idea of functionality is used here as a frame to explore typologies of objects and to discover their performative potentials. The idea of “performative object” aims to manipulate designed functionality to disrupt the experience and thus cause mindfulness in use. Within this understanding of functionality, the artist has made tools that only function in one specific environment or for one specific thing.
$50 for readymades, $100 for custom-making
