A unplanned theme around using things in art, both owned and discarded, has emerged for today's posts for some reason. The first example of this happy theme are these amazing photographs by hong hao. I gather from the title of the work, that he's cataloguing the stuff he owns, some in an ordered, archival fashion, others in a more jumbled and organic layout. I find this work fascinating and compelling because of the immensely personal nature of the subject matter juxtaposed with the ubiquity of the objects themselves. This is stuff that is his, a collection really, of things that we all own in one form or another. Everyday stuff framed beautifully, each telling a separate story but when placed together, a beautiful and strange pattern emerges. I could look at this amazing artwork for ages.
