Daniel Weil's "Bag" radio freed the inner workings of a common radio by housing them in a clear plastic sleeve decorated with brightly colored graphics. These components become part of the object's decoration, a result which subverts the notion of the rectangular black box commonly associated with audio equipment in the 1980s.
