Unworthy Objects

"What makes an object valuable? What makes one thing worthy of repair while others are discarded? Can a disposable object evolve into something more? "These are questions that student Augusta Lutynski explores in her project Unworthy Objects.

Augusta conducted research that evolved into a series of projects focussing on engaging and educating people in the practice of mending objects deemed “unworthy” and ultimately discarded. Unworthy Objects is comprised of object-mending tutorials in the form of videos, step-by-step "Instructables" and kits, with the goal of bringing attention to disposable waste."
