Routine Remnants is a collection of objects that visually record selected mundane moments in my life. Each object is a snapshot that captures a fleeting yet significant moment in time, offering a small but intimate glimpse into my world.
The project begins with an archival box that contains seven printed objects and an introductory manual in various formats such as booklets, flipbooks, maps, envelopes, and scrolls. Through these diverse forms, I hope to convey the personal significance and the emotions that I experienced during each mundane moment. The objects are thoughtfully abstracted to convey my narrative while preserving privacy and distance from the audience. Viewers are encouraged to interact with and explore the objects to gain insight into their significance. For those seeking further information, the accompanying manual provides context for each item. In the end, the seven objects can be stored safely within the archival box, ensuring their preservation for years to come.
Routine Remnants aims to recognize and value the often-overlooked, mundane routines that we take part in on a daily basis. By capturing these transient moments and transforming them into a collection of tangible objects, I hope to foster a deeper sense of appreciation and gratitude for the beauty that lies within the mundane.
