“They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”
"politics are downstream from culture"Garbage in, garbage out...
Garbage also originates in the framing.
Build a new frame, and some of the former garbage becomes treasure.
Yeah. Spruce up a jar of piss with a crucifix.
...or drop a urinal into an art gallery exhibit.
It was an an upside down pissoir. And how do you know they didn't drop the museum onto it? ;-)
Touche!“If a problem can't be solved within the frame it was conceived, the solution lies in reframing the problem.” ― Brian McGreevy, Hemlock Grove
"The word 'art' interests me very much. If it comes from Sanskrit, as I've heard, it signifies 'making.' Now everyone makes something, and those who make things on a canvas with a frame, they're called artists. Formerly, they were called craftsmen, a term I prefer. We're all craftsmen, in civilian or military or artistic life." -Marcel Duchamp
"Can works be made which are not 'of art'?" -Marcel Duchamp
<"The great problem was the selection of the readymade. I needed to choose an object without it impressing me: that is to say, without it providing any sort of aesthetic delectation. Moreover, I needed to reduce my own personal taste to absolute zero." -Marcel Duchamp
Frames of reference are everything in science. No description of nature without a frame of reference to hang it up on.
