Silhouettes are a powerful gesture of reduction. Reducing something to its basic experience by stripping away the elements that drive meaning and value. These objects reduce Mid-century to its most basic form, the silhouette. The objects erase the narratives and auras that surround Mid-century furniture to instead highlight and appreciate their form. Turning a forced perspective into forced perspective.
