The Importance of Display

Found object: piece of carpet. Label reads: ‘Found nearly intact in Khotan, Khotanese rugs were as valuable in trade as a wife.’


Part of my studio work was assessing the most effective way of displaying my findings. Here, I displayed objects on a wall without the physical boundary of a vitrine or display box. But despite this accessibility, I felt it didn’t give the same interactive experience as when the viewer has the ability to walk amongst the objects when displayed on pedestals.
