“Defense is a mind-set. Ask a 3-year-old, ‘Wanna hit or go catch?’ It’s ‘HIT!’ But up here you won’t hit every day. Your glove? You can bring that every day.”

HYPERART: THOMASSON by Genpei Akasegawa (English translation by Matt Fargo)

In the seventies, Japanese conceptual artist and writer Akasegawa Genpei and his buddies discovered “hyperart,” unintentional art created by the city itself. … Askasegawa wrote about these objects in a regular column in a Japanese photo magazine, and soon readers were submitting photos of Thomassons they had found to be evaluated. The book HYPERART: THOMASSON collected these humorous and profound columns into a manifesto of sorts …and it was a cult hit in 1980’s Japan.
- Kaya Press 

………………………………..

[Thomassons are] named after former Major Leaguer and Yomiuri Giant Gary Thomasson [who] signed a huge contract with the Giants in the early 1980’s and, despite hitting a decent number of home runs, was seen as a flop who struck out too often.  His strike outs (nearly setting the single season record in his first season) seem to have inspired not only Akasegawa to see useless yet persistent objects as having Thomasson-like traits, but William Gibson (in Virtual Light), as well.  
- A Noboru Aota Fan’s Notes (excerpt, "Thomasson")
