FORMS is a series of objects assembled by Hayden Dunham for the gallery in Farewell Books. In the month long installation, Dunham surveys a series of conversations held between objects and their environment.

Can an object hold light?
Is an object sensitive to its environment?
If light has a weight do objects wait for the moment that it touches them?
Are they moved by this interaction?
Do objects change their energetic disposition when exposed to certain environments?
Do those energetic dispositions translate into new spaces? Can energy be sealed within an object?
Can an object be charged?
