When David Blamey made an installation which comprised of a large vitrine displaying a collection of used rubber bands, he received a letter from an irate visitor complaining that his work was unstimulating and less worth looking at than a forest. This book, that was published to coincide with another exhibition of the same material, tries to address the subjective nature of the evaluation of art. By jamming images of a forest, a tropical fish, a sunset, etc. up against his own images of rubber bands, Blamey invites us to explore our own prejudices about the ambiguous hierarchical systems of value that are inherent in our society.
