How social objects fail to function

Shapes of Mallfunctiio series on cardboard kraft paper, Newport, VT, 2020

Social objects are objects that create a human connection between two people or more.

They are useful in such ways because they have a certain power and because of that, they affect our behavior
without we even notice it.

During this dramatic time, the collective benefits they used to generate become different.

We used to socialize and create networks around these social objects, but what happens when these social forms are obsolete.

Maybe the time is arrived for us to correct their function and create new social forms and united exchanges.
