My work takes inspiration from the folklore Bakemono and imagines an alternative way of viewing people and objects. Bakemono tells a series of horrific stories of stones, trees and domestic objects that turn into monsters. Unlike the modern cybernetic way of looking at things, there is a tension between people and objects in this tale, where our lives are constantly in danger, unpredictable and our position as cognitive subjects is under threat. As we have experienced in epidemics, natural disasters and wars, Lacan's 'the real' returns to our reality in the form of trauma and shatters the 'everyday', which is tightly controlled by technology and capital.
