Bathroom, anyone ?

By keith selmes  
A fine piece of fly tipping, in a piece of rare heathland, designated an environmentally sensitive area, just off the south edge of Dartmoor.
Most of the stuff looks quite useable.
There are glass window panes and all - in an area grazed by sheep and ponies.

Despite being a pure fishing expedition I think this image is worthy of inclusion into the Tate Modern. (Actually the real thing uplifted and propped against a wall in that gallery would be amusing to see)

I like the contrast in the light and shade and the man-made superimposed over the natural environment. The wooden doors give an element of "man winning over nature" but of course nature (or the local council) will reclaim all in the end.

The doors too are reminiscent of surfing activities and as an abstract this works well.

All in all a compleat* load of rubbish.

The idea of this as an installation made ma laugh. Perhaps I should go back and get it!
Thanks for these thoughtful comments.
