Ten people were invited to give a selection of objects from their lofts or cellars storage, in exchange for a nominal payment, of about £15. The objects were to fit a shelf 1 meter long, 28 cm high and 15 cm in depth.
These objects were wrapped together with and onto the shelf, creating a shelf as a new object. The form is predicted by the person, the object becomes a portrait of the person.
