In this paper we are outlining two ways of conceptualizing the interplay of 1. technology designers/contributors, 2. the artifacts they design and 3. the communities in which they act. A research and development process was conducted on the basis of the notion of objectification of purposes in artifacts – and their appropriation. The outcomes of the research and development process make it more plausible to assume functionality to be located not in single artifacts but in socio-material textures or spaces of action.
