The Edinburgh Evening News interviewed Douglas
Jones and discussed his exhibition. Douglas said:
"I created a kind of catcher, which had two
upturned hooks on the end of an old broom handle - a bit like the thing
they use to fish out plastic ducks at a fairground."
"The balls had a lot of character about them.
One of the first ones I got was the Coca-Cola ball which had been patched
up by a child using sticking plasters. It was perfect, and that is
the beauty of things you find. they have their own story."
The Edinburgh Evening News invited readers to
answer the question: "Do you think the work of Douglas Jones is
art or just discarded rubbish?" I never read the result of this
