COLLECTING + MATERIALS + FORM + PERCEPTION + SURFACES
— When reeling in the line from art and pop what makes the environment so different today, as opposed to fifty or one hundred years ago, is that the real world of Web 2.0 keeps your mind in the ether. As images transfer to hands, file extensions get trashed and everything sourced, found, junked; then somehow materializes again. Putting everything back together, the image of the object never returns as it normally should. This makes perfect sense to me: it is the battle of representation rather than the reality itself that concerns me most. Things can always be a bit more insane.
