The time we live in is entertainment, discovery, learning, and convenience. The textbook and globe show our need for learning. The phone cases show the phones that we use to keep us connected with people and entertain us. The iron shows us what we use for convenience. The iron is a simple way to take crinkles out of clothes in a short amount of time so we have more free time to do what we want.
Portia Munson's work is similar to our collection not only because of the color scheme but the way the sculptures portray our society. They show the objects we use on a daily basis in society or use to entertain us everyday.
