This three-part wooden piece is essentially a floor version—a 90-degree rotation—of spatial relationships that I explored in my hanging mobile “Enjoying Space” (2022). The work is inspired by Oliver Sacks’ famous essay “The Man who Mistook his Wife  for a Hat”, a fascinatingly interesting story about a musician with visual agnosia. I think this piece is not directly identifiable as a functional object. It might be seen as a saddle or a side-table, or as a random assemblage of abstract forms. [2022, “Things to Touch”].

“Things to Touch” explore geometries that challenge our expectations around functionality and purpose. In this project curiosity and sensorial observation are the guiding principles behind the making of each piece.
