Paulo Goldstein: Repair & Reconnect

Wednesday, 15 February 2012

Central Saint Martins' MA student Paulo Goldstein has created a collection of six hacked objects - including this steampunk-style lamp. The project taps into our tendency to form deep bonds with objects we use regularly: Goldstein advocates a culture of repair and reconnection, and each object has been fixed using creativity, craftsmanship and a touch of ingenuity.
