Using manufactured objects

Objects made by machines, particularly with 20th century materials, have an artificial, unnatural form and texture — plastics, rubbers, artificial fibers, metals - all have a 'man-made' quality. Advancing technology means that their forms need not comply with natural laws of structure and growth. Materials which are molded, extruded, printed, cast, burnished, glazed, galvanized, polished, coated, fused together, all possess interesting shapes and surfaces which are easily available for study and which can stimulate ideas for pictures.
