"Dilettante shapes"

 

"Dilettante shapes" is an experimental process which
investigated how hand-me-down objects behave.
For this purpose, various people were asked to exa-
mine a certain object, taking assorted characteristics into consideration, for a concrete amount of time. Consequently, after the object was taken away, they were asked to rebuild it. Moreover, the participants had to rebuild the object which his/her predecessor built. The objects changed, not in a completely random fashion as one perhaps would assume, but rather simplified with each participant.
