Furniture, sensors, servos, digital animation
4 x 4m

Breathing new life into mundane household objects, Lost Objects calls into question our relationship to objects and at a political level, the notion of ourselves as ‘domesticated citizens’.  Beginning with a familiar scene - a grouping of old furniture and appliances inside a room - domestic objects are brought to life, animating themselves in response to audience interaction though a series of images, servos, sensors and programming technologies. 

Lost Objects emphasises the impact objects have on our body in movement, spatial conditioning, cultural narratives and memory.​
