Window Walk | Aphra Cheesman X Klepner's Fine Antique Jewellery & Valuers
Our everyday habits and the objects we interact with are often overlooked, but they could be viewed as being a part of an invisible network that connects us though touch and action.
This project seeks to bring our attention to the unnoticed; it looks at how we can find comfort in rediscovering these everyday objects as things that connect us as individuals.
Therefore, it is important to me that the work is both interactive and wearable. I hope that through interacting with the piece, the wearer might reflect on the ability of everyday objects to represent aspects of the shared human experience.
Aphra Cheesman is a Melbourne based artist, originally from New Zealand. Her process is both playful and observant. She is interested in the in-between moments of daily life and is constantly looking for objects, materials and things in her everyday that she finds odd, beautiful, humorous, or simply intriguing. Once she notices something, she can’t un-notice it; this begins the process of translating her observations into further research, and making work.
