This collection is inspired by The Thing Theory developed by Bill Brown. The Thing Theory discusses the interaction between humans and
objects. The interaction gives function to an object, however, Brown thought that when
an object becomes a thing, it can no longer serve its common function.
From observing the relationship between object and people, I
reform daily life objects into things that look similar but different. Thinking
about the future with our habits are not working to help us become aware of the
things effect on and around. We design things for our needs. Gradually, after
we get used to using these objects we have made, and they form our habits. Once
we resign to the present state and regard it as a matter of course, we then
lose our ability to think about the things themselves. Most of us do not
recognize that, and even if we do recognize the effect of a habit, we may
incline to ignore it unconsciously by getting used to the newness, like a new
door handle, a new chair. This kind of recognition is important for our future,
and I want people to be able to rethink how design objects would shape their
habit through this new experiment.
