Objects of Empathy

Objects of Empathy, by Miya Kondo, proposes “conceptual and aesthetic forms for everyday rituals with gesture, posture, handling and materiality. Ambiguous forms invite engagement and interaction creating a personal relationship to the object, and thus defining the functionality of the object. These objects with no clearly defined function and with seemingly ambiguous meaning invite personal and subjective interpretation and reflection thereby giving them their symbolic value.”

“Functioning is not merely the function of things, but also their mystery.”
-Jean Baudrillard

    Lovely pieces… reminds me a bit of the work of Eva Zeisel.
