What happens to objects that are no longer useful? We might respond that usually they are thrown in the wastebin, but that would be insufficient, because the question is a metaphysical one. Bergson posed the same question and responded metaphysically: when something is no longer useful it begins, simply, to be. (Gilles Deleuze, The movement-image, 1983) Concrete Island is a series of photographs of objects thrown into a dump or simply left at some street corner in the suburbs. The pictures are shot from the objects' “point of view”. The idea was to take the pictures from the object's side, from the side of the things' world. It is not the objects who have lost their function and identity, it is rather their owners and the world who have lost the capability to see the things' function and identity.
