The objects that are part of our everyday living, those silent bystanders, retain memories through their use and become symbpls for the actions of our lives. How well do we know these objects that adorn our everyday and what happens to this relationship when it is taken out of the comfortable context of our home and disjointedm displaced and disoriented in a gallery setting? Calling attention to these often forgotten objects reintroduces the familiar to create an intimate common ground for a reinterpretation of these objects as the archetypes of our lives.
