Claire Randall, shadow box artist and wife and mother of three, must choose between her old traditional family life or a new creative life made possible by her family's house fire and her new living arrangement: a motel.
FOUND OBJECTS is a story of loss and inspiration and a search for self. The journey begins the morning after Claire’s family’s home has burned down.
FOUND OBJECTS is about Claire’s journey to reinvent herself as a mother, as an artist, and as a woman. It’s about creative women’s compulsion to make art and their struggle to do so in the domestic sphere. It’s about gender, gender roles, the institutions of marriage and motherhood, and most importantly, it’s about the necessity to create for the sake of one’s personal authenticity, spiritual serenity, and sanity.
FOUND OBJECTS asks us to examine how the traditional nuclear family and traditional daily models of living affect our personal development, our psyches, and our spirits. It also asks us to examine and honor the importance of art, the creative process, and women’s work, whatever form it takes. Above all, it speaks to the necessity of self love and following one’s passion to live a fully-realized life.
