These designs were generated from a concept based around dysfunction. Descriptions donated by others of functional objects were utilised as a `blind` starting point to the investigation.   The descriptions were collected through a social networking site.  A group was created that invited people from all over the world to contribute to the community.

These textual `sketches` were then translated using juxtaposing materials to portray key elements from the descriptions. The objects in their final state become self-contained and have minimal reference to their genesis.

This investigation informs Sarah Colson Ltd's ongoing research into community, informing the development of their products for the commercial practice.
