dc.description.abstractDysfunction is defined as abnormal or impaired function. To understand this we must first know the definition of function. To function is to work in a specified manner I order to accomplish a task. From here forward, utility will be used in place of function. With this prerequisite knowledge, dysfunction can occur, allowing an item to exist within the context of alteration and beauty prescribe for it. Tools are supremely relevant when considered with the framework characterized by use, which allows me to alter and manipulate them in ways that question the meaning of function and utility. Through the alteration of function and utility, I strive to let the viewer into my realm of modified tools that speak of work days past, labor at hand, and the value of a tool in today's society.en
