This work is an exploration of form and affordance thereof. By engaging with the wall, the objects create a striking graphic effect that is both quiet and curious. Each “Holder” provides a small platform for the considered display of a solitary object. In this way, the placement of a single note, an old photograph, or even a well-worn hat becomes a purposeful action. In weighing the benefits of one form against another for a given task, the users begin to curate their own lives.
