 This work consists of a set of artefacts made for performative narration. By executing an action they are reexamined as types of artefacts or plot devices as are their relations and statuses in narration.  Parafunctional design is a form of design where function is used to encourage reflection on how devices condition our behavior. In Hertzian Tales, Dune and Raby define the prefix para- as a design within the realms of utility that attempts to go beyond conventional definitions of functionalism to include the poetic.  Exploring this realm of parafunctionality, a set of behaviors typical for human obsessive–compulsive disorders is applied to everyday consumer electronics such as a water heater, a juicer and a kitchen scale.   2014 hacked kitchen appliances, Arduino Micro controller, electronic components, ureol (polyurethane) cases, acrylic paint. photos: Evi Oravecz model: Alexander Müller   Process documentation and research
