LIFE: AFTER DEATH


‘to discard even a useless object that I don’t look at from one year to the next, is somehow to discard part of a life’ - Deyan Sudjic


These three projects aim to explore the possible ‘afterlife’ for objects otherwise presumed as ‘dead’. Viewing landfill sites as mass graves, I collect objects from various ‘end-of-life’ scenarios; street corners, house clearances, freecycle, car boot sales, and explore ways that I could divert these objects from the grave.


By characterising the objects as living beings, I apply methodologies associated with death in the human context, in the hope of provoking an emotional response that retunes our perception as to the value and meaning of the objects.
