In researching for @kobocollection‘s art stage showing, I found Leonard Koren’s Arranging Things: A Rhetoric of Object Placement. A “taster” introduction to his attempt at theorising the principles of aesthetic beauty in seemingly randomly placed objects. Written in his usual concise albeit gestural manner like Wabi-Sabi for Artist, Designers, Poet and Philosophers. Our gaze and attention determines or objectifies the things around us. Depending on your mood of the day, it’s either a brave attempt or overthinking it.
