Stills From a Complete Conversation

“Every artwork has its own internal logic, its own vocabulary, its own syntax, its own grammar– that is unlike every other artwork (at least to some degree). the interesting thing is that, like characters in fiction or actors in dialogue, there are always some aspects to that logic that are feigned and others that aren’t. of course the problem is that the first question asked of that unique logic always seems to be humpty dumpty’s: “the question is… which is to be master–that’s all.” i’d like to know how humpty dumpty actually fell over (i’d have given him a push), but since i can’t know that, and his question remains inevitably and unfortunately privileged, then i think one way to at least unpack it is to restage tweedledum and tweedledee fighting it out. “
