I am one of the shortlists in Marrickville Contemporary Art Prize 2007 with this work.
I have been photographing abandoned chairs on the streets and in piles of junks a camera phone for sometime. What I see is the beauty of social interaction between the residents. In their short life cycles on the streets, they are dumped, offered, overlooked, moved, scattered, rearranged and finally picked up.
