An Untitled Series of Original Reflected Duplicate Works
An Untitled Series of Original Reflected Duplicate Works investigates the notion of function and its implications on the reading of objects and their purpose. Viewing a chair as an object in which form presents a presumption of purpose, its functioning value when considering designer and replica versions (in this case an original Eames DSR and its replica) begins to explore the objects value beyond its physical†use to that of its psychological worth.
The resulting works become a physical manifestation of the removal of the objects identity. In doing this, the function, both physically and psychologically, is levelled, with the mirroring of each other and further duplication questioning worth as their former and latter selves and to that of our relationship to such objects.
