What about using something that has a purpose and make it unusable, for example a chair with nails where we usually sit, a sweater with no hole for the head. The point here is to permit us to be creative with every day objects to go wild and let our imagination run in what ever direction it wants.

How fun! I remember in high school art class our teacher suggested making square tea cups that would spill if you actually tried to drink out of them.

Or simply drink from the corners... VERY, VERY carefully!  Grin

I personally LOVE this idea. I mean, it is easy for us to simply create one thing or another, but to render something unusable, on purpose, and still make it art, that takes effort and only our truly creative minds could accomplish it... okay... no more coffee for me! *giggle* Grin

Haha, I like this idea. Not your typical, run-of-the-mill revamp. Very nice!

I have always wanted triangle cups, plates, and bowls... simply because it is not something that everyone else would have. Grin

Hee hee ... this idea reminds me of a TV commercial from several years ago: a  crazed granny knit "sweatersssssssssss" for everyone in the family & each one had a serious usability issue - on didn't have a neck hole; I think one had only one arm, etc. (I have no idea what product was being advertised anymore). Anyway, I'm loving this idea.
