We can do whatever we like to things, but magical things are things that we allow andexpect to do things back to us. Magical things surpass themselves, in allowing us to increment or surpass ourselves with them. They are things, as we say, to be, conjured with.
– Steven Connor
Perhaps art objects offer greater reflexivity (magicalness) - that is they can operate on the maker/viewer as well as being acted upon by a maker/reader and that is an accepted thing. Although I have to say the difference between a sculpture and a tea cup can be quite minimal in affect. -Bridget Currie
