Layers, or the complex simplicities of the mundane

"This is an extreme closeup scan (2400 dpi) of a paint chip retrieved from the ruins of Belmont Art Park by Amy McKenzie earlier this year. The fragment is about 1cm thick, and appears to consist of about 150-200 layers of paint."

Gorgeous. In Technoscience and Everyday Life, Michael writes about the "complex simplicities of the mundane" and I can't help but see some connections here.

Anne, turn your head sideways and look at a shelf in the stacks of the library. Remind you of anything? Layers and layers of the mundane, meaningful once and perhaps again. Is the meaning only existant when observed?

Cheers,

Peter
