Objects in Mirror are Closer Than They Appear (2019)
How do we see, represent and try to understand the greatest forces shaping our current society? Can we map out a system which seems too big to understand? Can we try to make sense of the system that is framing our everyday lives?
Objects in Mirror are Closer Than They Appear deals with the inherent difficulties and limitations of representing capitalism, a totality without a singular centre. Many of us might perceive capitalism as just another ideology whilst there is, in fact, a physical infrastructure undergirding our seemingly invisible system. Capitalism is effective because it remains undetected, it is hidden under the veil of banality.This project is an attempt to map out the ‘invisibility’ of capitalism through the density of its presence in our everyday physical infrastructures.
