The Tele Coffee Grinder presents the logic of conjunction of whole natural objects. Together with their autonomous functions, they also participate in a parallel secondary production process, seemingly different from their original use (via Arduino software, a handset activates an objects circuit, which ends up grinding coffee). This logic alludes the way social and production procedures operate, where subjects, products and services participate without their ‘awareness’ or supervision in an infinite number of socioeconomic ‘circuits’, open to continuous enrichment and adaptation. The objects that the tele coffee grinder consists of have an ironic reference to human freedoms of movement, communication and production.
In the contemporary field of inexhaustible ‘generations’ of products, the concept of encyclopedia—as an objects catalogue—could now be substituted by an encyclopedia of ‘attributes’, which could define the potential ‘integrations-uses of objects within different contexts. These properties would refer to concepts such as ‘motor’, ‘coil’, ‘capacitor’ or ‘resistance’ and can serve as potential waiting interconnections. It is the overall amount of its potential accessions that now defines an object. The small structure is part of a theoretical ongoing research on tinkering and ad hoc translations of architectural exemplars.
