We spend a significant portion of life's time working with and associating with objects. We bind ourselves to these objects for various reasons; whether it's for the purpose of making a living, or for fulfillment, a life becomes indistinguishable from the objects repeatedly interacted with. My aim is to provoke a reflection upon the quality of a life's time spent through merging figure and found object.
