Luncheon In Fur by Meret Oppenheim

 Things suffer, as a person would, when they are reduced to their functions. Care of the soul, therefore, requires that we see things less for what they can do and more for what they are. Art helps us in this by reframing things in an aesthetic context.

In order to care for the soul of things we must pay attention to form as well as function, to decay as well as invention, as to quality as well as efficiency (277).
