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.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
