physical substance in general, as distinct from mind and spirit; (in physics) that which occupies space and possesses rest mass, especially as distinct from energy.
“the structure and properties of matter”
The man-made plastic alongside the natural stone. An apparent dichotomy, however both materials enduring the test of time. For me, the ever-growing abundance of cleaning and beauty products for women are both absurd in their function and absurd in their necessity. To immortalise these objects in stone is to render them useless. A statement about our cultural desire to pressure women into the ‘needing’ of such objects, highlights the strange way in which we have removed ourselves far from our natural world. To bring together the pure matter of material (stone and plastic), is to question our own existence as creators of things. What will be the artefacts in the museums of our future?
