Lowkey Differences, Highkey Important

A catalogue capturing the fine details and uses of the every-day object.

I find keys interesting as they are all built differently. The way each one is shaped different from the last, can create multiple patterns and textures. Not only are their ridges all different, but they also have various heads. Some will have a brand name on them, some blank with a textured feeling, while others can be plain and smooth. Some can be brand new and shiny, while others are beginning to rust. When you look at the tails of these keys, some are longer, or wider, than others. Each key opening and closing a different object. Many keys look the same from a far, but when you take a closer look and compare the tails, each one curves a little different than the last, with a flatter ridge, or a pointier end. The underlying theme of every key opening and closing a different thing, each serving their own purpose, intrigued me and drew me to these everyday accessories.
