(sic) is a collection of photographs of objects in my home. Having spent far too much time alone there, the objects that I share it with have occasionally taken on an unexplainable significance. Where did this stuff come from, and why do I still have these things? The ordinary becomes unfamiliar through close study, and possession imbues them with metaphysical implications.
