EVERYTHING MEANS SOMETHING WHEN SOMEONE IS LOOKING
We see certain features that we are used to encountering,
such as light switches, door handles, power outlets, etc.
We tend not to notice them.
We look for them, but we do not see them.
They can be different. We notice their absence.
They can be broken, damaged, defective or non-functional.
We take their function for granted and infuse them with banality.
The function needs no explanation,
and its use provides instant gratification.
YOU WALK INTO A BEAUTIFUL ROOM
FILLED WITH NATURAL LIGHT
THE ROOM OFFERS A SOLUTION TO A PROBLEM
LOOKING WITHOUT SEEING
USING WITHOUT MEANING
