Soon after I had these thoughts about functionality, we were given an introductory project in our final year at art school called ‘seven rings’. I encountered the theories of Karl Fritsch, always an important one when in conversation with this topic: "The ring is desperate, desperate to find a finger, desperate to tell you: I love you, I am beautiful, I am rich, I am cool, I hate you, I come from Ireland or Austria, I want more, I have enough, I am married, I am funny, I am scary, stupid, important, I can't help you. I am.” I liked the way he personifies, and almost glorifies the ring. I began to think, what if I had a ring that didn’t want to find a finger? Then I started associating rings with other objects: making simple connections at first, then developing into more abstract terms, for example a ring for a jug to hold a candelabrum, perhaps. However, I still felt the need for a reason behind these associations and experiments, and began to analyse daily interactions on the table top. While filming and photographing here, I noticed lots of funny anecdotes or reoccurring problems to try and solve, develop or reinterpret.
