The chair is the ultimate symbol of that seminal moment in human history known as the agricultural revolution, when hunter-gatherers became farmers, transitioning from a nomadic lifestyle to a settled one that focused on the immediate environment. And being settled, they also sat. Perhaps using a rock or log as a ‘chair’ as they gathered around the fire. A chair both allows and forces you to stop moving and think about life and the future in a different way. When humans learned how to control fire, how to use it to change the form and function of matter, their dominance as a species was assured. Without a chair to watch over the fire, history could have taken a very different turn. 'Boot Legs' is a tribute to the chair, but also a sad reminder of what settling down has led to: sprawl, overpopulation and endless reproduction.
