The Misused is a study on global hardware culture initiated by two industrial designers. Each year, the project observes hardwares in different country. The designers will first deconstruct the original functions of the hardware and to repurpose them. Following the first study on Taiwanese hardwares in 2018, the project went on to study Dutch hardwares in 2019.
Parts of the Taiwanese and Dutch hardware works will be presented in the exhibition this time. A talk with Anthropologist Shih-Hsiang Sung will explore the relations between design and anthropology in the industrial society. A two-day workshop will also held to invite the public to misuse the daily hardwares.
