We experience the world through recurring acts of daily ritual. A bowl of apples, an ink stain, a shadow on a wall can be talismans of a secret household culture. As senators of our own days’ experience, the reimagining of simple objects can be at once existentially disruptive and strangely comforting. Italian research workshop and studio Fabrica writes the poetry of ordinary things in Extra-Ordinary Gallery, a collection of everyday objects reimagined.
