The Secret Life of Things
Metaphysical realism is the view that most of the objects that populate the world exist independently of our thought and have their natures independently of how, if at all, we conceive of them. (E. Jonathan Lowe, 2008) 'The Secret Life of Things' explores the mundane spaces we pass through quickly without noticing and those communities of objects within which are often perceived to be merely static. This work draws attention to a sense of vitality and consciousness within these 'things' that one could imagine having a life of their own away from human interaction. There is something unexpected happening around each corner, maybe more than meets the human eye.
