We imagine things come true and pay our best attention to products which are usually just used or even pushed aside. Questioning and redefining their function leads to new shapes and behaviours which break out of the scheme of constant optimization.
'The Extinguisher' is one of three animation sequences which whimsically sabotage the expectations in the form and functionality of every day life objects, exploring the possibilities that lie beyond what is necessary – the absurd beyond the reasonable.
We Imagine Things Come True was commissioned by curator Benjamin Loyauté for the Prediciton Exhibtion of the Biennale Design in Saint-Étienne, where it was exhibited from November 20 to December 5 2010.
