In order to appreciate the mundane, we must remove these objects or experiences from the everyday context in which they are familiar. We must learn to value the aesthetics of the ordinary. This can only be achieved not by looking, but through seeing. Raising the status of the everyday is important to develop an understanding of the objects that we are so commonly associated. Colour is an integral part of design. Its absence would leave us in a world of banality and repetition. Through methodical documentation, the mundane is transformed to the monumental. These objects that were once considered too boring for artistic attention, are appreciated for their aesthetic qualities as sculptural objects.
