Screws & Skin

How does design resemble our distinctions between what it means to be human and what it means to an object? And with this distinction in mind, how do we design the world around us?

Screws & Skin is an ethnographic documentary that will follow the making and designing of something alienating.
This design will combine materials unconventionally and in doing so make explicit hidden black boxes of design. By revealing these black boxes, Screws & Skin opens up discussions on design, technology and humanity from a philosophical perspective.
