1+1=1, a short film accompanied by the collection of fashion objects, is ironical exploration of a person's mindless relationship with objects they come across everyday, especially what they wear. A play on the theory of affordances, that posits how the human perception of a new object is largely determined by how we think we can use it.
Our familiarity with these everyday things makes us oblivious to them. A slight change in something would suddenly make it more noticeable and invite us to explore its capability even further, by offering a shift in our approach. This is a playful documentation of such an interaction that tackles the question of how things are ‘supposed’ to be, by bringing awareness through discomfort.

Accompanied by the physical collection of fashion objects, also titled, "1+1=1."
