I keep a shelf of faux natural objects such as plastic produce, plants, rocks, bones, and a porcelain cabbage. Among these are a couple of anomalous objects that both break and point out this system. In this case, I embrace the restriction of not fixing any of the elements in place. This plasticity allows for growth and change. It’s a mostly settled upon composition, which I call "shelf-life" (a play on still-life and perishable foods).
