This work re-presents a safe, transforming it into a contemporary icon. Invested with mythological and economic significance. The object symbolises physical wealth in a world now dominated by a new belief system of data and digital currencies. ‘I see Safe, as a ritualistic object, for me it acts as a sacred hearth or the golden egg’ This object triggers questions around value and security. This protective modern shaped container forever sealed shut is a found object, contents unknown.
