NEW from The Trinity Series -

"Trinity #15 - Milton Avenue Readymade, Post Documentation Study I"
manipulated digital photograph by Mick Mather
On my way to work every morning I drive by a pair of businesses that share a parking lot. Along one perimeter of a no man's land separating the two, is a series of metal posts wrapped with orange, construction barrier fencing. After a few weeks it began to register that these might be a candidate for The Trinity Series. Soon after the realization I stopped to take a few photographs - see the original here at No Matter What Shape - The Archive - and while doing so was quite taken with the conceptual idea of the readymade art object popularized by Marcel Duchamp. Even though the idea seems a simple one, I discovered that it's not as easy as it sounds. In any case, there are likely to be a few more post-documentation studies to come.

Cool! Love it very much.
This reminds me of Swiss painter and sculptor Jean Tinguely's works.

Thanks for putting me in such good company. Now, of course, I'll have to look up that body of work and see for myself. :)
