To meet things around us is to recognize the voices of them and the vibrant interconnections between them.
To appreciate absurdity in the overlooked is to abandon the anthropocentric presumptions and to unsettle the taken-for-granted purposes, value and opinions of things, so to discover potentials from the absurd.
Instead of “using” and “making”, the artist can have conversations and collaborations with things. Instead of “staging” and “showing”, the artist can let the art situations happen in the daily habitat of them and us. Instead of “controlling” and “acting”, the artist can react to and interact with the temporal, spatial, and social situations.
Allow art situations to live, beyond rigid opinions of power structures between the dominating and the dominated, the managing and the managed, and the viewing and the viewed.
