"What I’m photographing here is a nineteenth-century-made machine. I’m trying to make it present as art or sculpture. So my interest- curiosity- is if the non-artist-made object can be presented in a way that it can keep the power of art itself, without artistic intention of its making. I think it’s very conceptual. Marcel Duchamp invented this readymade concept. So I’m definitely borrowing. I cannot escape his influence."

- Hiroshi Sugimoto
