Steinbach has interest in ┬áthe meaning of objects through culture conditioning and personal ┬áperception, he sees objects as language. and his iconic way of display is very important, ” There may be something ceremonial , of course, about building this shelf and presenting things on it thusly; the work refers to the way we give place to things at home or in the museum….there’s a ritual there, a ‘look here’ gesture, a history a cultural tradition, a manner of speech. we follow the practice of building this kind of structure to communicate with objects.” —–Heim Stainbach
