For nearly sixteen years, I have been searching for alternative uses for objects that are made for other purposes. Industrialized objects perform specific functions and are designed based on ergonomic principles—they adhere to technological and formal requirements, and are made of various materials, different finishes, and produced by a variety of manufacturing processes. These objects become raw material for me. They lose their original function and are transformed to serve another system and perform different functions. This is my way of thinking about objects.
