Untitled Object Arrangements

Untitled Object Arrangements is a series of rearrangements of everyday objects that people will inevitably interact with, thus making them collaborators. My intention is that when someone sees that the objects have been intentionally arranged, they will consider the purpose of the arrangement and their role in changing it. The rules and goal of arranging the objects shift each time someone interacts with them. Eventually, the boundary between using the objects as game pieces and using them for their intended purpose dissolves, and their role in the game becomes totally unknown.
