Small Objects of Desire

The project Small Objects of Desire examines found objects. Perhaps originally prized possessions, they are now lost or discarded ephemera.

The items selected are those that embody aspirations: each was marketed to appeal to children.

They mimic adult’s objects, either consumerist ‘lifestyle choices’ or dangerous fashions: A toy mobile phone, a sports car, a pistol and an orange-tanned stick-thin doll.
