I placed the organic material in a situation that is
not for a usual human orientated purpose, this was an attempt to pull the object’s essence and name further apart in order to present the viewer with the gap between signifier and signified (the thing). Without the familiar environment of function, form and name, which is the process that enables humans to track its identification, there is a loss of categorized information. This awakens humans to see things based on our five senses in order to gain access to the thing presenting itself, rather than through our educated knowledge.

Forcing the viewer to experience the difference of things from their inner senses instead of the external knowledge. By opening the senses and abandoning their knowledge, this compel viewer re-considering the epistemic modality. This allow the society to accept different sound from different angles, as there no high or low position different within subject and object but a complex complementary relation.
