Iben Lilleriis Andersen
Touching Objects

Iben Andersen is invested in our relationship to the everyday objects we surround ourselves with. In a series of video works, she examines how we interact with various everyday objects. These objects are all utility items with a function, but the question is how are we affected by their design and materials? We all know the special feeling associated with touching an object we are really fond of. Yet there are very few objects, which acquire that status. Most of them are hardly even noticed and live a precarious life characterised by interchangeability. In our materialistic culture, we use things as important indicators of status, lifestyle and identity. But, we often forget the other values and affections we attach to banal everyday objects.
