Bundles, clusters, stacks
Just like in Madagascar (see Malagasy bundle), I can't help noticing here the way people group objects and materials into clusters, stacks and the like.
Shops are bulging with goods which spill onto the streets. I guess the scarcity of storage space and the advertising powers of cornucopia-like displays have something to do with it.
The skills used to make these bundles vary from the improvised to the artfully methodical.
Inspiring stuff for sculptors. I took the image on the left in the Kathmandu valley some days ago. On the right, Barry Flanagan's no. 5 '71, from 1971, part of Tate's collection.
