Toys of a Two-Year Old, 2006

65 x 120 inches
photograph in shaped frame

The image shows all of the toys with eyes owned by my daughter at the age of two when she was on the cusp of speaking.  A relative who worked in a secondhand store would reserve favorite toys as they were donated and then mail bunches of them to the girl.  Each of the 401 toys were photographed separately on a product photography table that lights a subject evenly from all sides.  Then these individual images were scaled to half normal size and placed in a white digital void the shape of the human visual field.
