Afterwards, we wanted to utilise symbolic objects which reflects diverse connotations. At first it was difficult for me to research artists who utilises three dimensional objects in their work. However, I came across Damien Hirst through book 'Art the whole story' and became inspired by his use of symbolic objects and images such as the 'chemist' where a variety of pills and medicines placed in cabinets reflects our desires of immortality and remaining healthy which is impossible and ridiculous. As a result, we considered utilising 10 objects which were a condom, a packet of cigarettes, money, heels, bible/Quran, water, wine, books, social media and a 'free call'.
