It’s not as easy as it seems, to look at an object as purely an object.
We are so used to first putting it in a context, for instance a context of art, furniture, tools, etc. that we often value it only from within this context. It never really is the object it self that determines what it is.
This series consists of several moving objects that are made to be an object.
In this sense they are allowed to be free from any opposed context, and they may do what they do best.
Each object has it’s own solitary character, and moves in it’s own way.
