This exhibition focuses on objects designed to encourage meditation within the home. Stripped of an obvious utility, they appear largely ornamental, forcing the gaze both onto the voids they frame and their materiality. The polished stainless steel mirror makes these objects a silent, quiet observer of their surroundings. After all, is it not the shrine of a secular person a mirror?
The objects invite interaction; the openness is intended to stir users’ imagination from an abstract but clearly defined starting point, and promote object-memory (both functional and cultural).
Crafting less for less: design-less, use-less, through engagement with simple lasting forms. These objects are a reflection, standing still, promoting a momentary pause.
