general pile of things owned by my ex-flatmate until she can move into her own flat at the end of the month:
"With this pile of general things, Sian Cummins has done something new, something I've not seen done before. Effortless."
upside-down cap from a water bottle next to the sink:
"Like a breath of fresh-air. A simple beauty, the likes of which I have not seen in a long time. Miraculous."
leaflet on eggs, picked up from the checkout at morrisons, now slightly tea-stained:
"This leaflet on eggs is either disturbingly brilliant, or brilliantly disturbing. Whichever, I loved it."
penguin bar wrapper, near the corner of my laptop:
mysterious empty vase (once held flowers, now unsure what to do with it):
"Precise and masterly, this empty vase tells us things we already knew, things we didn't know, and things we would hope to avoid. Thrilling."
small cross-section of the orange throw i bought from ikea to cover a stained old sofa:
"Reminiscent of the works of McEwen and possibly even Updike, this cross-section of orange throw is up there with the greats."
