Objects, both mundane and precious, all play a role in the context of our lives. In this piece, I took a selection of objects and presented them as if they were standing at a particular point in one’s timeline. With a splash of creativity, I placed my earphones, lipstick, shoe, jelly treat etc., on sushi rails, each of which embeds different memories of my life. Time ticks at a constant pace for everyone at every moment. Great moments fly by, however, while hardships seem to linger around in slow motion, like waiting for your favorite dish on a sushi rail that simply never comes. When I hold an object that is meaningful to me, it acts as a time machine, transporting me to different spots of time seemingly forgotten.
