Still Life

(August 23, 2015)   Still life explores the relationship between human and object.

With this cabinet, I want to explore the distance between an object and a person and how we can affect our physical surroundings.

How does a person bond with an object? Is it possible to fashion an object that creates a bond between itself and its user without any prior memories or attachments? An object that lives. The Still life cabinet is my attempt to bring a piece of furniture to life, to create a sensation of presence through form and function. An object that challenges our usual way of thinking, an object that forces us to rethink. It turns the observer into a small child grasping for the unknown.

Still life consists of many laths which can be pushed from side to side to create different shapes.
