Altered furniture constructs a tableau that seems to appear as a mirage to the viewer as they walk across a shadowy warehouse space. The strange and ornate objects present possess both specificity and mystery. In many respects the objects act as a surrogate for the body and create a scene of interacting characters. The viewer questions whether or not this environment belongs to someone, and if so, who that someone could be. It is unclear whether someone has been there or will soon arrive. Although the installation exists at full scale, small details and the setting's otherworldly quality transport the viewer into the intimate and imaginary space of the miniature.
