Everyday Conversation

  • Everyday Conversation explores the relationship amongst common objects, like fans, and our relationship with them.

    When the fans are alone, they talk and gesture to each other using the language of fans, air displacement and sound. Due to their shy and timid nature, when a human enters their presence, they stop talking. However, if they feel safe, they will slowly begin to talk again. But, if they sense motion and become frightened, they will go silent.

    The fans’ animistic qualities are meant to lead the viewer to question their relationship to everyday objects and how they might be communicating with us in their own language.
