As an artist researcher working on the everyday, I’ve come to realise the curious potentiality of ordinary stuff as matter to think with, and which can think me. This talk will explore ideas of chewing things over, see what can be done through a carrier bag theory of non-fiction, and recognise the human propensity to discern patterns in unexpected places. Through the objects I use and encounter in the research, knowing/knowledge is conceptualized through metaphor, and particular forms shape the understanding, expression and analysis of ideas. Keywords: the everyday; pareidolia; thing theory; patterns; carrier bad theory
