Haunted Books

Thrift to Design:

Project description:

"In 3 weekend sessions, we will explore the notion of ‘value’ from a number of perspectives, exploring product categories such as novelty and kitsch, readymades and repurposing, as well as the role of collections and customization to affect perceived and/or practical value in existing objects. The students will select an existing (mass-produced) object with little or no monetary value, and through an ad-hoc process, raise its value."
