By adapting hacking processes to new technologies, Thomas Grogan questions market led approaches to the curation of the material world. While commercial product design and advertising do impact on people's desires, and therefore place some limits around the freedom of expression, hacking cultures reveal how consumption is not a top down and passive process but about processes of appropriation. Products are not stable things, but rather come into existence when they are used by people in different and unexpected ways. Thomas is interested in understanding how ‘products’ define communities, and those communities define ‘products’.
