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.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
