Borderline Where Material Changes Into Product.
Just like shaving the wood to make furniture, or kneading the clay to make vessels, isn't there a simple way to make home appliances from materials? It is not an appliance covered with a decorative exterior, but a pure object that seems to arise from materials. Just like different materials are combined to create new materials, we treat the electronic components as materials and combine them with resin, which would normally be used as an external material. While this composite material is conductive, the material can be established as a product in which the electronic components actually function. From where is this a material, or a product ? This is a prototype to think about the borderline where the material changes into a product by initiating the thinking process from the material, and to think about the existing framework that defines it.
