“Colorless green ideas sleep furiously”, is a sentence composed by Noam Chomsky in his 1957 book Syntactic Structures as an example of a sentence that is grammatically correct, but semantically nonsensical.
I recently started to make a collection of cameras which I call “grammatical nonsense.” They are plausible products made out of found objects from hardware stores. These objects refer to linguistics in that they take the structure (syntax) of something but there is no actual function (meaning). This idea of ungrammatical sense-making is the second part to this project that I want to continue working on. That is, to make objects with only the function but not the form. For example, something that takes picture but doesn’t look like cameras.
