About the Picture

The object world bases its theme around the notion of an existential world where all things are linked according to their correlative connectivity and use within that realm. Not so much a semiotic or sociological association, rather than a Heideggerian notion of hermeneutic disclosure and potential through existence. The objects chosen imply an absurdity, a world of jokes, and poetic refrains.
