A family of 25, bonded by their roots in a process of change and improvisation with limited means. These are ‘almost’ chairs; transfigured from their raw and processed timber beginnings, not quite civilized; not quite furniture. Once hosting conversations and inspiring imagination, the family reunites to share stories of separate journeys. They are the empty seats at the table, quiet beside the elephant; no more than arranged material artifacts, waiting again to be reborn.
