Chairs IN the wild since 2005
We commonly look at chairs on the street as trash. However, chairs are more than refuse, they are loaded objects. Seats, or chairs have been depicted historically in art in every medium imaginable. They often tend to serve as reminders of the absence of human presence. The chairs I found on the street took on an anthropomorphic status when critically considered in their immediate surrounding. The Chairs have a dialog with the street. They highlight the isolation of large urban environments and are charged with sexuality, violence, spirituality, and humor.

The Rules: Chair can not be staged, it must be homeless, and it must have a name or story.
