Misfortunes of the Inanimate
Positive films, slide projector
Sympathy exists often in the form of a response, and most of the time with the agenda to make a situation or feeling better. However, such agendas are not required towards inanimate objects, since there is no actual benefit in doing so.
Misfortunes of the Inanimate is an archive of case studies, in which inanimate objects were victims of unfortunate events. The series of images aims to challenge the audience to make emotional connections with the objects, hence empathising with them.
"Empathy fuels connection, sympathy drives disconnection." - Brené Brown
