Abstract: (T)here is a body of work focused on the role that systems play in the formation of everyday experiences and encountered objects and works to highlight these systems by mimicking their visual languages and organizational behaviors. Objects are the residue of human institutions, cultural bodies, and their influence, and this authority often remains invisible through its design. By fusing object-making and aspects of relational artwork, the projects executed for T(here) unearth these structures by pointing to them in a direct manner that often requires participation, asking audiences to reconsider their role and the inherent value of these structures themselves.
