How to make a guitar teacher throw up
Still shredding tho. Tell me I’m wrong.
The bed, a plain rectangular shaped object that still has a top and a bottom?
Unorthodox? Weird? I still get a good night sleep. Tell me I’m wrong.
Got myself a big, nice, comfortable and fully supported footrest to help me relax while i sit down to watch TV.
A reversed arrangement of furniture. I’m comfortable as hell. Tell me I’m wrong.
The Playstation controller. A carefully constructed, yet linear design for comfort.
I’m still winning. Tell me I’m wrong.
This photo series highlights rebellious acts of utilising everyday objects which can be found at an everyday home against it’s “normal” use. The photo series ‘Tell me Im wrong’ challenges the ideas of ‘How these objects SHOULD be used” and why it is wrong to use them in different methods. And no matter the argument for how wrong it actually is using these in this manner, if you’re still getting out of it it’s main function. Why is it wrong?
An instruction manual, the name of the object, how the products are advertised, and how the world generally views the purpose of an object; Do these reasons really solidify the way we use these object? And make some methods “Wrong”?. Unless the use completely eradicates any use of the object at all, what is so wrong about sleeping headfirst at the foot of the bed? what is so wrong about sitting on the footrest and using the couch as a footrest? Obviously by design the objects aren’t being used for the intended purpose of the architect, but the same results, while unorthodox, are still into play here.
The inspiration for this work was an article in Good House Keeping of 30 everyday objects you are using wrong. While this article did teach me things I may have been doing wrong, in reflection, if what I’m doing still works, is it still wrong? furthermore if you completely use objects in the most unorthodox and absurd methods, but still achieving desired results. Is it still wrong?
In this photo series I highlighted 4 objects which are used in a strange way; Reversing the footrest and the couch, sleeping at the lower end of the bed, using the playstation controller backwards, and playing the guitar as if it’s a piano. Some of these methods are completely absurd, but the captions to the photos conveys the idea that they are still working to it’s desired intent. And since it is, is the method really wrong?
