The groovy concept of the hacked object

Waiting for a dangerous thunderstorm while groovin’ to the work of Chris Held and his concept of the hacked object. It would quicken the heartbeat of any resurrected Dadaist, but his work goes a step further since it not only creates a montage, it creates a strange yet newly functional object. Do check it out. It’s got me to rethinking some of the lesser-loved junk I have in the household.
Perhaps thingbox should start a section of upcycling supplies?
