Contained in the smoking objects of affection, resides a residual cuddle to comfort the machined parts of our attire. A friendliness, a posture, a pose, a dormant object sits perched or reposed, repurposed for considering a persona. Portraiture of the objected, collected, gathered and unsewn. The after materials of our daily wear create a new life of their own, as presented as image projection, archived, and mounted to the wall. Behold a box of treasure to meditate upon. A centrepiece as real, imaged, once worn and given eternal life through memory as memorium.
