I noticed this jumble of textures in an alleyway on the eastern side of Zhōnglì 中壢 sometime last week. The scene is completely mundane: a corrugated metal enclosure with a patina of cracked and weathered paint has been added onto someone’s home. Access is provided by an old door installed for precisely this purpose, though it is now deep umber with rust and might not actually open anymore. Taken out of context these otherwise ordinary objects have the potential to become something else entirely, maybe even an accidental form of art.
