Friday 3 February 2012: Found object paradox
A found object is usually something interesting found in the outside environment and brought in to be displayed as a piece or part of a piece of art (which is, as we all know, whatever an artist (who we all know is someone who describes themselves thus) chooses to describe thus).
However, photography makes it possible to find found objects, however banal, anywhere, made art both by the act of fixing the relationship of the object to the light at a given moment that elevates the banal to the sublime, and the front of the person describing it thus.
More front than Selfridges me..
