The Maintenance Cabinet
In this project I took inspiration from fables to create objects that communicate a moral lesson. The moral lesson being maintenance in life (in self, environments and relationships). In this piece, I created a self contained domestic maintenance cabinet. A Christian alter aesthetic has been utilised to elevate maintenance beyond the physical environment of the home.
As well as some more recognisable cleaning tools, the cabinet also contains oil, vinegar and salt. These are substances which have biblical connotations but also must be used sparingly in domestic maintenance, playing with the idea of balance.
