Aesthetic of Time

Aged objects acquire traces of their journey through time. Unpredictable marks and stains are left like finger prints. Through use utility is deteriorated as parts are worn and softened. Decay re-shapes, even when an attempt is made to restore or preserve, as with layers of paint the color and form is altered. Time fades the original object, Time authors a new one, digressing closer to the organic, nearer the original state of the natural materials. In this way all things are fluid
