This project seeks to take a new approach to traditional user manuals based on sampling, a musical production technique that is very common in hip-hop. Sampling (and resampling) is a working process that takes pieces from different elements and combines them to create a unique and new item. This technique extracts these pieces from their natural habitat to de-contextualise them; it chops them up, changes, deforms, serialises and combines them with a view to generating a new message.

We live in a world bloated with data, images, videos, news, messages and constant inputs. We live in a world where collective forms of sharing knowledge generate a massive amount of information that is constantly doing the rounds. And just like hip hop lifts portions of audio to compose, this user manual has been scanned and compiled with these elements that do the rounds, such as photos, articles, chats or illustrations, which redefine or complement the content. The outcome is a sampled manual.
