For Radiation Collection (in Chernobyl) we imagined a scenario in which traditional pieces of furniture would have endured some kind of radiation; where their genes would have mutated Radiation Collection is a collection based on the evolution of objects. This experimentation has created adaptations comparable to the ones observed in nature.

Hypertrophy chair : the hypertrophy of one extended armrest complements the use of the chair as a functional object (The chair can then be used as a newspaper rack, coat hanger, etc…)

The next generation of these pieces would then manifest the mutations. We came up with many versions of possible mutants.

We then wondered which of these mutations would be “positive” evolutions, that would enable the entity to better survive in its environment, while others we called “negative” evolutions (these comprised the majority) and did nothing, even reducing the ability of the entity to survive in its environment.
