Thanks for this. I love learning about artists who have the talent to find fascinating, disorienting details in the mundane world.

Great stuff. Found art can be the best. Plus it's a really great way to enjoy photography & see the world a new way.

Jeff Brouws' Language in the Landscape series has similar found text, only in color with more emphasis on irony. Ironically, the generally unironic mien of Koch is something I find more interesting. The disorientation Ardgedee mentions is heightened by that sense of mystery (or indeed, wonder).
