I expect 'chip' is short for 'chipboard.'
Someday people will get PhDs in Art History by writing dissertations about this stuff.
But the work also has a more universal address, which is not to deny the complications of contempraneous aesthetics, but to eke out a space for a wider spectatorship. The work makes me think of Lacan’s dictum that there is a void at the heart of the subject that we fill with signifiers which communicate with one another rather than express our intimate sense of being and our traumatic relationship to death.
loosely based on Art and Psychoanalysis by Maria Walsh
I'm pretty sure that the "decor" in question is the paper balloons and banners. You could use them to decorate a room (in a dollhouse).I expect 'chip' is short for 'chipboard.'
Sorry, I slightly misread the Wikipedia article.That's news to me
That's how I understand it too.Chipboard as I understand it is the same as particleboard, which is entirely different from cardboard. You can fold cardboard and cut cardboard with scissors or a razor blade, but you need a saw blade to cut particleboard and chipboard, and they are not foldable.
