"Made to Malfunction" Collection

Sound-making devices created during the Creators-in-Lab 2018 residency at Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, South Korea

“Made to Malfunction” refers to the concept of planned obsolescence, a feature of all consumer products. They are designed to have a limited lifespan, then fail, forcing consumers to replace or 'upgrade'.

With "Made to Malfunction" I have created a collection of sound making devices from parts of discarded electronic products. Each device is presented in its own display case, to be (re-)considered an object of great value or interest.
