Found objects

I forget who observed this, but: everything anybody desires is a found object. Nobody every desires anything before they have seen it.
This is interesting to the artist: you don't have to fit your art into what you, or people, expect, because don't know what they desire before they see it.

This is nice, and rings very true.
Quite possibly for other things than art, too.

Is it possible that you can create something that is desired before it's seen?

I vote yes.

How can they desire it before they see it?
If you say "desirable" instead, then yes.
