Objects with a specific function, which we now refer to as products, have been in existence since the hand axe was first created around 2.6 million years ago. With the world's current affairs dominated by financial crisis, energy problems and speedy technological advances, the incessant consumption of products is easily forgotten. We need to reconsider the value and role of products to avoid over-saturation, decreasing quality and negative environmental impacts. This collection provides commentary in the form of poetry, an attempt to describe the essence of products and to appeal to the humanity we have lost.
Each piece was formed in response to these questions:
Question1 - Did the product exist before it was made physical?
Question2 - Where and how does it come into being?
Question3 - Is the initial idea represented when made real?
