The brilliant Yorkshire Sculpture Park notes:

Serge Spitzer’s work is concerned with human perception. Through performance art and sculpture in a wide variety of materials, he raises questions about the process of looking, as opposed to seeing.

I’m not quite sure of the implications – but the abandoned farm machinery on your Pembrokeshire rambles can be easily be redefined: dumped rubbish, scrap with possibilities, subject for a photo, work of art? It can raise a thought on changing local lives and perceptions of beauty.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
