THE MUNDANE OBJECT I.E THE PLUG, IS OVERLOOKED AND BUILT FOR FUNCTION NOT FORM. HOWEVER THE PLUG FUELS THE MODERN WAY OF LIFE BY PROVIDING THE POWER TO USE T.V’S, COMPUTERS, KETTLES ETC. THE IMAGES WHEN FIRST LOOKED AT SEEM SLICK, GRAPHIC AND COOL (HARMLESS). LIKE THE WAY SOCIETY SEEMS TO ONLY LOOK AT IMAGES. THE WAY LIFE SEEMS TO BE ALL ABOUT GLOSS AND NO CONTENT. THE IMAGES HAVE UNDER LYING ISSUES THAT AREN’T AT FIRST APPARENT. LIKE THE FACT ELECTRICITY CAN TAKE LIFE, AS WELL AS GIVE IT. THROUGH LOOKING AT JUST THE PLUG AND ITS SURROUNDINGS, THE VIEWER IS ASKED TO BUILD UP A PICTURE OF THE OWNER OF THE APPLIANCE, THEIR ROOM AND LIFESTYLE. THE TYPE OF WALLPAPER AND APPLIANCE WILL AID THIS. MAKING THE IMAGE A KIND OF PORTRAIT.
