Robert's aim for this project was to honor the inventions of our past and save some of the icons from being forgotten.
They have become cultural artefacts from a different world.
By photographing items from the last century, while using a 21st century camera and computer, Robert was forced to think about the qualities and limitations of our everyday objects. And how this affects us.
Whether we possess them for a month or for generations, the things we use become our collaborators.
These relics helped people through dark nights and hot summers, offered medicinal and musical relief.
In that way, all the objects we have used, loved and discarded shape us and in a way our whole society.
