This work captures the adventures and wandering tales of protagonists with a hidden, throwaway past. Released from their captivity, these characters and found objects are given a renewed purpose and claim a re-discovered and re-invented identity.

These previous 'throwaways' are now the new heroes in a surreal, super reality and blur the line between ambiguity and recognition. Fragments of dialogues are whispered and tales are unravelled. Viewers are allowed only glimpses into this new stage of these merging, independent worlds. The whole story is never shown.
