Designs You Dont Know What to Do With - A Book about the Meaning
8.5 x 9.5 inches, 328 pages, full color, in Japanese with English translation
From the authors: "On one level, them DYDKWTDW is an amusing compendium of contemporary archaeological puzzles. At another level, these puzzles raise troublesome questions abou how we make sense of the manufactured world now that the idea of design is beginning to slip into history. For many, design is already just so last century." Basically, this is a series of photos of objects that have been taken out of their packaging so that there's no way to know the original purpose and then the people involved tried to guess how these things could be put to use.
