Lina-Marie Köppen's Learn To Unlearn project shows how everyday objects might look - if we knew nothing about them.
A two-legged stool, a lamp on a pole that turns on when lifted, a broom with two handles and a brush with very long hair. The objects made by Köppen have recognizable parts but their function is unknown.
"By ridding objects of a predetermined 'perfect' function, we can be free to discover them and rediscover ourselves in the process. ... I have sought a way for individuals to start afresh and redefine themselves by reshaping the things around them."
"The bottomless containers demand a new strategy to be filled, while the two-legged stool encourages us to rethink the act of sitting. The lamp challenges us with its weight and unseen mechanism, the tall shelf can only be reached by interacting with the direct environment, and the broom lets us not only clean but also develop a personal bodily response."
"Some objects are even less defined and invite the user to imagine an entirely personal interaction. Only when objects become alive in this way are we stimulated to explore new possibilities."
