I explore the recognition of surroundings by transforming everyday objects into new forms. I emphasize specific aspects of common products, found objects, and industrial objects that surround us and I suggest a potential opening for them in the art and socio political context. This process redefines the function, role, and meaning that we commonly recognize with them. By incorporating the objects, I introduce the idea of distortion and the subversion of traditional meanings while proposing a discussion about the object's value, and the subsequent value of the time, history, place, and event that the object is meant to commemorate in everyday life.
