I use materials that are lowly. They are bound to fail. They are widely used and strongly associated with the classless. The one common thing that my materials have against them is that they are trying to be better, trying to be something else. A mimicry and a falsity. I feel for my materials. Why are they so stigmatized? Do we want to believe that we can achieve “betterhood” by casting out things that threaten that? The lead mirrors reflect this collective anxiety. They offer desire and deny it at the same time.
