The idea of an object becoming acclimatised to its surroundings is something I have always found fascinating. Whether it be an ornament in your house that you only notice it once it is missing, or on a more personal level, recognising a change within yourself when adapting to new surroundings. I can imagine this chair having changed in the same way a domestic cat possibly would if left in the wild for a number of years. Would it still be aware of its original character, history and purpose?

  3. It might be reminded of it's original purpose if someone sat down on it, but I doubt that will happen, as it's cosmetic appeal is somewhat diminished at this point.

    I, however, find that appealing. I love this photo.

  4. Such a nice photo!! I love stuff like this, like peeling paint on a house or furniture, I find that stuff fascinating because you can fantasize about what it's been through and even what it's feeling.
