Metastable: Disintegration, temporary structures and their potential

(2018/ongoing)

A metastable design, which is based on a possible disintegration of designed things, suggests (in)capable future options as to how we could encounter anthropocene questions at a material level. It questions the conventional division into stable and unstable structures and shows the potential of dealing with this dichotomy. It tries to counteract the accumulation of things that sooner or later stand in our way. The objects shown disintegrate into their constituent parts by the smallest possible interventions into different connecting structures.
