Memento metamorphosis

On our recent weekend in Zurich, I saw teacups doubling as lampshades and open books hanging as mobiles from string threaded through holes bored through the pages. Both made me think how everyday objects can be given other contexts and uses which, conversely, makes their own essence more noticeable. I wondered if this might be a way of bringing some of those buried mementos and artefacts to life? Would it work, for example, to create a mobile with some of one’s keepsakes?
