By Dier Zhang
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 a “performative object” aims to manipulate designed functionality to disrupt the experience and thus cause mindfulness in use. For this exhibition, it consists of site-specific wall hooks, book ends, and a door stop.
$50 for readymades; $100 for custom-making.
