Zum Glück gibt es kein Patent

Monika Funke Stern &

Norma DIN works at the Patent Office. Her life is governed by her day to day work in a big office, by the total abstraction and out-of-context way in which the inventions are presented to her, and on the other hand by the magic and the promises of happiness in the descriptions on the bags and boxes containing the inventions. The two novelties she’s given today have strong connections with her private life. (VIDEONALE.2 catalogue)
