"Now I am not what I was when the word was forming to say what I am"
William Carlos Williams ,The Great American Novel
'Ideas in things' present an equal sense of wonder between both ‘things’ and ‘language’. The artists included in 'Ideas in things' are collected here for their resonance in how each charts the movement of the making of an artwork from a natural to an artificial phenomenon. This transition presents a classic artistic or, more commonly associated, poetic problem of the desire to evoke uniquely personal experience through a public medium. The drive to force the conventions of a language to express the private nature of experience is the bedrock of creative work. In working with quotidian objects the dilemma that presents itself is that in choosing to talk about ordinary matter is to risk falsifying - Yet equally and at the same time to remain silent or speechless is to risk creative annihilation.
