On Tom's Urs Fischer Post

I'm posting instead of commenting on Tom's piece below because I wanted to include a larger installation photo that I think illustrates Tom's point; a point beautifully summed up in his title: "When Attitude Becomes Immaterial."

Imagine if any one of the photos on the side of one of Urs Fischer's boxes were hung on a wall -- there would be a sense of the photographed object existing in space. Silkscreened to the chrome boxes however, the photos flatten out to the point of immateriality.
