"The ordinary and the rare, their interconnectedness and interchangeability.
There is a quotidian sense of loss and tragedy.
Collect, accumulate, gather, preserve, examine, catalogue, read, look, study, research, change, organise, file, cross-reference, number, assemble, categorise, classify, and conserve the ephemeral. [...]
A sort of journalist reporting the common, observable world. [...]
Look for narrative of any kind. Anti-narrative, non-narrative, para-narrative, semi-narrative, quasi-narrative, post-narrative, bad narrative.
Use everything."

– Allen Ruppersberg Fifty Helpful Hints on the Art of the Everyday, 1985.
