"I wonder why someone would choose to be a weed in the garden of jewellery. The answer seems to have something to do with a desire to intensify awareness of everyday things as things in them selves rather than as signs of something else. It is that experimental sensate thing to which Sontag points, the pleasure of touching the familiar and finding it strange, the pleasure found in the weedness of weeds."
