Everything is not as it seems. The materials and attributes we thought we ‘owned’ by right of their tight experiential association with certain familiar objects (e.g. the cardboardness of a cardboard box or the polystyreneness of a polystyrene one), are cast by Armanious into a different reality and our trust in our own understanding of things is thrown.
