Transformation is a marked change in form, nature or appearance. With this theme having many different ways to be represented, we decided to focus on directional transformation, taking common household found objects such as chairs and tables and transforming them into other found objects from the house.

We began doing this by removing the function of these objects through methods such as cutting, rotating and elevating. We then added a new function to the objects by adding features found in other objects e.g. Placing a bath tap on the side of a door in the place of a handle and changing the placement of the chairs to give the suggestion of a fireplace.

An important part of our work is also the use of light and shadow. Light and darkness being in itself a transformation of our surroundings but also, with an initial interest in the sundial, which used shadow to measure the passing of time which is a vital part of transformation.
