Stool, from the series Fractions.
In collaboration with Daniel Durnin for Horror Show, where 16 RCA graduates used the 200 year anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to produce new work by responding to Frankenstein’s narrative.
Dr. Frankenstein’s own hand created the monster.
It is within this context that fractions seek to explore the hyperobject that is global warming. The effects of this change can be seen the world over, and is far more substantial than the local manifestations that it produces.
Fractions, a series of three objects, looks at the changes in our environment and using data from scientific research has presented it in the form of percentages within the objects themselves.
From loss of overall tree coverage 50%, increase (stool)
in greenhouse gases 40% (vase) to the Polar cap ice water in sea levels rising 20%. (tray)

Theodora Alfredsdottir is a product design studio based in London.
Theodora is an Icelandic product designer. She holds a bachelor’s degree in product design from the Iceland Academy of the Arts (2012) and a master’s degree in Design Products from the Royal College of Art in London (2015).
Storytelling through objects; Theodora’s work revolves around the narrative an object can inhabit and exploring ways of objectifying that narrative. She's interested in the way an object can act as documentation of its manufacturing process; a record of what went on between the machine, tools, craftsman and material as well as it can communicate its origin and former life. In short, the object creates its own factual narrative. That often leads to the discovery of unexpected qualities as well as it gives the user a subtle opportunity to reconsider our material world and explore value in a different way.
