In this project I looked into the CAD files open source sharing communities online. I have realized that many of these 3D objects users are uploading are functional, such as knobs, bolts, wheels and other daily objects. From these 3D CAD files I have randomly chosen, I created a library of objects I liked and thought are iconic. My choices aimed at objects that were new to me or just funny, weird looking and kitsch.

With these different objects I started creating computer modeled sculptures of different combinations, using the objects I found as “building blocks” for my work, and by changing their scale and merging them with other objects they transformed into one complete new composition.

In this work I wanted to lose some control over the design process using “readymades” that other people have already processed on their own. In this way I'm able to explore a work process that isn't exclusively mine, but still is an original work by me as a designer. The purpose of this project was to explore who is the designer and what is her role?
