In Unclear Proof, products from an Italian winery are abstracted and transformed into the shape-shifting protagonists of an alternate reality. Through this re-contextualisation of everyday objects into a new otherworldly role, we are distanced from their previous function and allowed to reflect on it and, by extension, also on the wider cultural and symbolic function of objects as a whole.
