"First, put aside the desire to judge immediately; acquire the habit of just looking. Second, do not treat the object as an object for the intellect. Third, just be ready to perceive, passively without interposing yourself. If you can void your mind of all intellectualization, like a clear mirror that simple reflects, all the better."

The watermelon casts are artefacts that tell of a moment where the event became more than just eating a watermelon.
Minor details were noticed as a result of becoming conscious to the act of eating. Teeth marks formed on the watermelon skin little hills and valleys. The wax casts replicated these details and presented a way of looking closer.
