Extensions explores the connection we have with objects that we hold on to but do not use in our daily lives. Using the framework of wunderkammerns, Extensions examines storage spaces as accidental cabinets of curiosities containing objects of interest, both specific to the individual, but also general categories of objects relevant to the collective. The incidental placement of objects of value alongside forgotten trash, accumulations of objects associated with function, or with nostalgia and memory, are all commonplace in these collections. Using abstraction to remove literal interpretation, this installation encourages the viewer to go beyond surface perception by exploring the layers of connections and associations that we have with objects.
