The useless appratus project, Mundane Intersection, is originated from body movements in a performance "inside" by Dimitris Papaioannou. The project is an attempt to visualize interpretation of the  performance,  similarities and differences of our daily routinesn focused on performers body movements, into a kinetic appratus.

The Appratus produces varying movements as a user pulling out each row of its center wires. As the wires move, front fabric face shows varying surface volume while the fragmented back face creates moving pattern in color accordingly.
