Following Marcel Duchamp’s steps, the Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco photographs found objects and generates new lectures to that which surrounds us on a daily basis.
Similar to what happens when we look up and imagine shapes for clouds, Orozco photographed some tarnished tubes left under a washing sink and named this image Pulpo [Octopus] because of the shape’s resemblance with the animal. Can an everyday object turn into something else?
We propose the following activity:
Analyze: What other names can we assign to a same image? Does something happen if we give an object different names?
