Under the circumstances of scarcity and strict control, like refugee camps and prisons every object is valued not simply by the merit of the function for which it was manufactured, but rather by all of possibilities and potential that derives from it’s properties. Defiant Objects are inspired by items made is such conditions. In a playful rebellion they detach themselves from an assigned function. By recombining their properties with other objects, they reinvent themselves and their function.
The project was part of
