A series of arranged handmade objects, 3d-prints, cast objects, printed images and painted components based on the formats of flat lay photography.
Flat lay photography sees the organisation of images and objects to exact a specific mood or feeling.

Often used by Vloggers and influencers to promote specific products, it sees a tandem of self--corporate promotional work where advertising infringes social space.
There's far greater delirium in everyday tackiness than there is in apocalyptic sublimity.
