Noticing More: Rubbish Telly

“Life imitates art far more than art imitates life”

Oscar Wilde


Some one dumped this telly by block of flats near where we used to live in London.

Of course, I couldn’t walk on by without taking a quick pic. A few days later and unbeknown to me, Hiro walked past the same telly and took a couple of pictures, too. It was interesting to see what became of the telly.

Part of me is sad that an object that is clearly minding its own business can be subjected to such treatment. Part of me accepts that, that is what happens to anything that is discarded and abandoned on the street side. And there is also a part of me that could imagine the smashed up telly in a gallery somewhere.
