Surround is part of an exploration of common human objects through way of deconstruction. Making present the hidden details of objects we utilize on a daily basis that share the same living space as our own human bodies. Shedding light on the objects that are often disregarded due to their enclosure from the outside world. Surround is intimately inspired by the performative act of dissecting a twin sized mattress, exposing the resilient materials within.
