Uncollectible. Assembly Instruction
Edition 1 of 1 Uncollectible. Assembly Instruction" illustrates my vision of how ordinary things can lose their original functionality and become more game like. I used IKEA assembly instructions to visualise this metamorphosis. With just a very few simple manipulations, I downgraded their valuable utility status. I added additional elements to the manual’s graphic symbols and signs. Now it is hard to tell the difference between the original graphics and the ones added by me. By messing up the tracks of the correct assembly, and creating a tortuous path where the algorithm has been calibrated, I show that today's reality requires new forms of assemblage. These new types might look absurd or even ridiculous. The instruction doesn’t guarantee a successful result. It becomes, first and foremost, a reference to itself. This is a sort of self-reflective situation marker in which a tangled transformation process turns out to be more important than the thing we know.
