New Installation! "Lost and Found" by Michael Whitney

"Gloves" by Michael Whitney
All found on the streets of the city.

“When I see a displaced object, I see a story, a history, and a future. I don’t try to mask or hide the scars of an object’s past life but instead I honor the experience each object brings along. I create new relationships between objects – and new purpose for them. Some are given a second life, literally. I animate pieces with batteries, light bulbs or mirrors. To some I just give legs and arms. They become subtle variations of their original selves – or whole new things, possibly only because of what they used to be.“
