Sitting on a chair is an everyday activity. We take it for granted, embrace it and also desire it. A chair is not just a tool, but also something that we project our aspirations onto.

Cutting a chair in half is also cutting out the aspiration, which may violate the norm of our righteous belonging. But it may also cut off the extravagance and make our sitting closer to what it should be.

Restriction applied to the chair may give us more freedom, not only to our body but also to our mind. Hence, half a chair does not only mean half of a full chair, but it can mean more than what a full chair could offer.
