Through the course of alternation Neufeldt intersects our process of understanding and the accustomed manner of approach by manipulating the characteristics proposed.

By dislocating the habit of immediate recognition, Neufeldt redirects our urge to comprehend into a space where the consciousness is forced to grapple with an unfamiliar line of association. As the core of the original object’s shape is still recognizable, the narrative and experience of the item remains. The Specific Object is in this manner not stripped of its objecthood or specificity but becomes reconfigured and extended towards an unacclimated path of investigation, that in the work of Florian Neufeldt targets the inherent relationship between the object and its handler.
