The glorification of the mundane

Ka Loi

Can we get excited by the most mundane products? We are living in a world submerged and abundant with artifacts; we have already accepted the way everything exists and appears without any further questioning or understanding regarding what they really mean to us. The over abundance of artifacts lessens the value of what we possess. As a result, we constantly acquire new 'stuff' regularly; but what do we mean by 'new'? Something we have never seen before or something we do not expect it to be?

My project is about questioning the function of existing objects and how the alterations of these objects can increase or alter it's value; which opens up new opportunities and can affect social behaviour.
