Los Angeles-based sculptor Robert Therrien, among other projects, makes giant versions of ordinary household furniture. In a 2004 interview, in response to a question about his use of scale, Therrien wrote:
The artist’s point of view - from the small world - could be viewed as a large gesture publically. The practice is creating something both large and small.
Publically, Table and Chairs is perceived as a big object, where it actually originated from a small detail-a corner bracket supporting the table leg. Instead of crawling underneath and photographing an actual table in order to see it, why not shrink yourself and take a normal snapshot?
