Open Questions and Next Steps

As stated earlier, the goal of my investigation is to explore topics surrounding the idea of counterfunctionalism. Why do we as a society have such a tendency toward designing things that serve us in a specific manner? What happens to our designs when we approach them in a way the counters the conventional mode of design? What new perspectives can it bring when we approach design from the perspective of counterfunctionalism, that is, designing in a way that counters functionality? Moving forward, I would like to push the counterfunctionist notion forward by designing artifacts that vehemtly oppose their intended function. Maybe it’s possible to somehow design something that serves a new purpose in that way. Maybe it’s possible to push the imagination of society further past its bounds as we delve deeper into what we think are limits, and what we make to be limiting.
