"The collection Self-made objects are designed to have an experience of their own functions. For example, there is a kitchen scale that turns itself over and weighs itself. This is an example of an object having a self-reflection experience because the function for which the object has been designed has turned into the one that gives it meaning" Gizmodo interview 2005
