every thing we touch...

1 min read

„There are lots of things we touch all day“. Whether making contact with people, or touching everyday objects or particularly valuable, fragile items, our sense of touch is valuable and essential in addition to all our other senses. The things we touch every day are also the passion of FSB, Gira and KEUCO: the doors we open, the light we switch on or off, the water in the bathroom which we start or stop running.

More about this theme

Paula Zuccotti shows in her collages “Every Thing We Touch: A 24-Hour Inventory of Our Lives” an artist’s view of the mobile objects the people selected by her come into contact with daily.

„What‘s the first thing we touch when we wake up? How do our favourite things reveal our hopes and fears? Can objects tell the story of our lives? Imagine how your day would look if you recorded everything that you touched. From smartphone to soap, from spice to spoon... what if they were all brought together in one place? Would they tell a bigger story? Driven by this idea, I travelled around the world to find people from an incredible array of ages, cultures, professions and backgrounds. I asked them to document every object they touched in 24 hours. Then I gathered those objects together and photographed them in a single shot. Each image is mystery, a story, a work of art. Each is a moment in time: a life and a world reflected back at us.“
