The cold taxonomy of Conceptual tendencies, affinity for the bureaucratic accounting Sander places onto the living world renders it uncanny, the thing displayed, removed from the world of its functionability to become an object seen, torn from the world to wilt under our watch. The reductive ordering of natural object to an extraneous criteria, the faintly fascistic transgression we find naughty, fun.
