Art and Fetishism

What is a fetish? A substitute object for a prime desire.
Why is it important in the context of art? Art makes fetishes.
What is the relation between artist and fetish? Purveyor and victim.
How can an artist fall victim to fetishism?
By favoring materials and methods over expression.
Hear that, ye photographers!
