Artist Lucy Wheeler researches the interrelationships between objects and cultural phenomena using object-oriented ontology’s school of thought. The things in question can exist in many forms and often appear on a scale that can’t all be perceived by human perception. They can only be partially noticed as they live on a larger scale that we can’t comprehend. This partial notice can be manipulated; the selected objects begin to possess different values or begin to resemble and appropriate another myriad of forms. These multifaceted objects are delegated to the status of a ‘hyper object.’

 

These relations and appearances are not meant to be understood but discovered. Assembling the fragments these ‘hyper objects’ present produces a familiar but new phenomenon.
