AWOL examines the 9am–5pm ‘glaze of existence’ of the working world. An assemblage of translucent sloughed off skins from the office environment signify a vanishing act that has taken place. The leftover skins suggest that the prior objects may have taken on the form of live creatures, denizens of the desk which have wrestled and slithered, maybe even turned themselves inside out to escape from their office bound roles.
Some of these skins are nearly crystal clear or globular like amoebic organisms in their early stages of life, while the frosted appearance of others brings to mind the end of life atrophy of something like bleached coral.
As the office artifacts age and caramelise over time, the exsanguinated forms suggest notions of fatigue, regeneration, expiry, and in the end our own mortality.
