the photograph of a building

We are looking at a building in a photograph in an architectural magazine. Though not inherently insignificant, the manner in which the building is offered to us holds a particular significance of its own, beyond our encroachment upon it. Thus we perceive the building as insignificant, and it turns into a finding by dint of our tentative treatment of it.

In a work by Claisse, as shown in the Brison's photograph, I encountered
something familiar: the base on which -first using
indelible ink on copies of the photograph and then with three dimentional
precision design and an image processing program- it was possible to develop drawings
and images for new structures that looked as though they had been generated by
the photograph.
