Losing the Joy of Discovery

A man was walking on a railway bridge and heard interesting sounds, which he first believed to originate from the brakes of the trains. After listening for a while, he noticed that it was, instead, a sound art piece prepared for the bridge. He was very disappointed because the interesting phenomenon he noticed – and in a way made to his personal artwork – was suddenly transformed to somebody else’s artwork. The sound already had an owner, which did not give space for the listener to make it his own anymore.
