In this photo series, I asked people to construct a “sculpture” within given time constraints (2 minutes) with the pieces of dismantled furniture. In doing so, I seek to treat the pieces as raw materials for imaginative gestures instead of following the normal procedure. The resulting tableaux are surprisingly very different from one another, as if the individuals took over the generic look to make it their own.
