Making Something Out of Nothing
After watching Ed Ruscha: Buildings and Words, I found myself delighted by the thought of this man creating works of art out of the most understated items or buildings. Out of all the different kinds of paints and pencils he could choose from, Ruscha chose to use things like chewing tobacco and ketchup to make his art.
I find that there is so much beauty in the process of looking at something ordinary or bland and making something phenomenal out of it. Ruscha’s ability to make the most of mundane heavily reminds me of building a sandcastle. Sand is rather boring until you make something fascinating out of it.
