O'Brien's work often takes the form of the transformation of everyday objects into something new, wonderful and often magic in their simplicity and perfection of workmanship. Aristotle proposed the idea of substance and accident where an accident is something that has no connection to the essence of the thing described.
SUBSTANCE: what does not exist in another and not said of another
ACCIDENT: what exists in and is said of another
