Furniture: Disclosed and Displaced 2003-2006
In the simplest terms, a table might be characterized as a surface set parallel to the ground. It is a surface that often supports other objects. Surfaces are always already everywhere, part of an accessible and intelligible, yet often inconspicuous background. A table is a surface that discloses itself as both present and ready ("to hand") - as what it is, and what it does; as an object of theory and as an object for unreflective use. And yet, the surface of a table rarely discloses both at the same time.
