Perhaps you suffer from it too! it starts as a hobby, a collection, a job, an interest... then somehow it grows taking over your life, every waking moment becoming part of the obsession... our obsession, manifest in sleepless nights, haunted days, the angst over imperceptible detail, the quest for perfection. The disorder is unknown, the cure - success. This year, 2012, OFFF Barcelona celebrates the designers infected with the Unknown Disorder and showcases their work, the symptoms of obsession. The festival book develops the diagnostic theme, presenting the work of this years artists as a series of patient files in the hospital of OFFF. Each file presents original work by the artists including some made specifically for the festival. The book allows reader feedback by way of device scan-able barcodes which will be used to develop info-graphic artwork later in the year. This year the roster of artists includes publically submitted work alongside such luminaries as: Daniel Eatock, Lucy McRae, Radical Friend, Jessica Hische, 1st Ave Machine, Yuko Shimizu, Attik, James Victore, Andreu Balius, Brosmind, Folch Studio, Carlitos y Patricia, Mario Lombardo, Catalina Estrada, Sehsucht, Ritxi Ostáriz, Losiento, Emil Kozak... The book design is by Doce Collective and contains a special case-file dedicated to their obsession with the theme of 'twelve' .

A plastic cup, an egg, a coin, a pencil. These are objects that pass through our hands everyday; we consider them to be simply tools for our everyday needs. It wouldn’t occur to us to try and use these objects for more artistic purposes, yet this book features artists who have done exactly that.
