“...you're not how much money you've got in the bank. You're not your job. You're not your family, and you're not who you tell yourself.... You're not your name.... You're not your problems.... You're not your age.... You are not your hopes…”.
~Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club.

Message R27:489-a.2 (The What What)

When you pull something from a mold there is a notion that the object is supposed to be one way, or there’s only one way that’s the “correct” way of it existing. Similarly cultural ideas about race, gender, and sexuality are social constructs formed over centuries of habit. Various institutions validate these conventions. The idea of caste as a fabricated belief is echoed in the objects finish. Most objects are metallic, rusted, decidedly decayed or in the process of aging to express categories of character as manufactured ideas forged over the process of time.
