A Pointed Commentary On The Commodification of Humanity**

We as human beings cannot see ourselves as commodities. We are spiritual beings rather than commodities and we make must work hard to make ourselves heard. If we see ourselves as simply commodities, we have in reality turned ourselves into machines. Cogs in the wheel of the great mechanized revolution.

This piece of art I saw today in the Institute of Contemporary Art exemplifies that as no other piece of art I have ever seen:

**Nope. It was a gauge pipe thing arrangement (don’t know the technical name) I did actually see in the Institute of Contemporary Art today. I went to see the exhibit on the Black Mountain College, which was lovely beyond belief and they were playing music to accompany the exhibit. I turned the corner in one of the galleries, expecting to see a movie of some kind. Instead I saw those pipes and started photographing. As usual in stupid situations like that, I got everyone’s attention and a guard ran over, probably wondering why I was photographing the pipes and the gauges in the museum. I told the guard I wasn’t a terrorist, which I guess is what you think a person who is photographing pipes and gauges actually is. I don’t know.
