+ Work > - Dysfunctional

Objects that failed to live up to their intended use, or became obsolete due to technological advances fascinate me. Early flying machines, rusted old farming equipment, and antique medical tools provide a thought-provoking aesthetic enhanced by their inability to function. Tools and implements with seemingly far-fetched designs are interesting to study for their formal qualities. The process of design inherently generates flawed ideas and failed attempts, which are often more interesting than successful outcomes.
