A series of light boxes containing colour photographs of executive office chairs and cyan-blue fragments of magazine advertising of luxury goods. The interchangeability of images presents an equivocal relationship between corporate power and the fetish of surface appearance in commodity styling.

Like an empty chair, the object of desire waits unfilled, infinitely deferred but constantly alluded to within the economy of the fragmented, circulated image.
