The Embodiment of Repair: Consumer Experiences of Material Singularity and Practice Disruption

Through an ethnography of consumer repair practices, we find that objects can develop material singularity, which uniquely facilitates embodied but continually changing practice performances. By repairing these objects, consumers attempt to restore a singular, embodied experience of practice performance.
