Best Before October 26, 2008

This work documents a collection of seemingly random, mass produced consumer items unified by each product’s expiration date, October 26, 2008, a day which coincided with the closing date of the exhibition Daniel Eatock: Extra Medium.

The first of the two photographs documenting the collection as exhibited was taken in the gallery on the day of expiration. The second photograph was taken the day following the expiration date.
