In an interview on an online media, Faisal Habibi said that he saw how objects and spaces construct each other, and how finally he had a different understanding of an object. Faisal has been paying attention to the material culture from early on. He interrogates such culture with a freedom to play while putting objects and their functionality in a critical view in such a way as they have dominated our daily lives to the point where objects appear as intermediaries in our interactions with others. We, in turn, identify (ourselves) with such a fetish that in fact hinders social subjectivity and agency. This kind of critical interrogation takes shape in the form of changes and adjustments in the ergonomic level, which provoke us to restart a conversation with everyday objects, and, thus, with ourselves and our bodies.
