I work in the Deutilization domain of conceptual art.
From WikipediA: "Conceptual art, sometimes simply called Conceptualism, is art in which the concept(s) or idea(s) involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns."
“Productive work” results in objects that are considered useful, or having practical value. During the Deutilization process, commonplace objects are being separated from their practical value thus revealing their true essence. This is different from Appropriation, where objects are given a different meaning. And of course Deutilization is very far from recycling when useless objects are given practical value again (different from the original or the same).
Deutilization does not operate on garbage. Deutilization takes perfectly functional “useful” objects, preferably new, and makes them completely dysfunctional in terms of the original intent.
You can find a short digest of my work here at Studio Visit:

The most notable items from the Deutilization domain are:
#Scissaurus - won "Best In Show"
#HedgeCone (and its variation #HedgeConeRad)
#MeconoMorph - currently spreading in Providence, RI
