Sculpture & Photography > 5 Piece Dinette Set w Chandelier

5-piece Dinette set w/Chandelier and Gold Frames consists of life-sized silhouettes encased in large cardboard display boxes with clear plastic fronts, similar to the commercial packaging of Barbie boxes. The silhouettes are constructed from veneers comparable to each object’s original material. The dinette set, composed of four chairs and one table is created from wood veneer; the chandelier from a crystal lighting panel (the same material used to cover the phosphorescent office lighting fixtures); and the gold frames, faux-gold panel. The materials themselves are mere surfaces used to construct convincing representations of their referenced forms. The boxes lean on one another against the wall in a vacant room. They wait in limbo, to be displayed, stored or unpacked.
