THINK #42 ART = Object Design:
How can art help?
Art can inspire, confuse, clarify, muddle, expand, contract, open. Art can be a reference to a design, it can also be a design the functions poorly but makes us smile, laugh or confounded. As art creeps into design it may transform its actual function from useful to humorous. Picasso used a child’s toy to give life to his mother monkey.
