A purse hangs; it sways as it's being carried. Used. Its top opens up and a magnetic card emerges. A turnstile unlocks. The object anticipates human contact; it drives.”Think: the future of product based technology, the same that is as one with a global capitalist agenda. Small sculpture, keychain- art further democratizes and diversifies access and distribution of knowledge. Small sculpture, keychain, art indicative of your habits of consumption.” A once clear voice is now reduced to a tweet as the earphone is removed. An elevator beeps and purse and human are lifted. Increasingly brief moment of solace or a high jump.

Mimi’s work is self-embodied and stares. Navigating both the rapid obsolescence of new technologies and human mastery over such advances. Damp clay, glass and refurbished mechanic parts in toy-like iteration belong here with us in precarious arrangement, perhaps not always precarious but recently handled and seeking further contact.
