1 DAY is based on a series of small hand-crafted drawings, based on the objects that we encounter on a daily basis. Shoby has distorted the size and perspective of these objects as to create a unique point of view because their impact is much larger than meets the eye, so it’s necessary to shift our perspective while looking at these objects. A vast amount of energy, thought, and engineering exists behind such innovations; yet we use them for a fraction of their lifetime. We have become so dependent on many of these items, if not all of them. In fact, they are nothing but disposable, everyday items to us. Imagine seven billion people using these plastic objects every day in the world. Even if some were being recycled, there is a lot of energy involved to incinerate those that can be melted and reused, most of these do not get recycled.
The pieces that make up this collection were gathered from the lakeside, off the street and out of her own usage. They are drawn as they were found.
