“Something to Hang On To” is about the role objects play in human identity formation.
Inspired by society’s obsession with seeing themselves, her pieces help balance furniture pieces whilst to providing a boundary between the public and the private. Through this flexible system, function can be varied, things can be are added or removed.
Karin’s intention has been to create a piece of furniture that affirms the future demands for change and individualism, but also through its variability can become something permanent. Something to hang on to.
