We gave this project a title: when does something... become something else? the apparent is the bridge to the real. As we understand it, a title is always difficult. It sets forth the presupposition that an expression makes sense, that there is a link between separate terms, which also means between concepts, problems and theories which seem at first sight to bear no direct relation on each other. But let's do it! OK? Let's suppose that there IS a link! Here are some expressions, terms, concepts, problems and theories: When Does Something Become Something Else? Attention As Place / Presence As Performance / Doing As Seeing / making as thinking / The Apparent Is The Bridge To The Real. What is a ventriloquism of form? what is the difference between the memory of something i saw physically and something i saw in a photograph? what is wholeness?
WE'LL LEARN FROM THESE THINGS IN WAYS NO ONE COULD'VE TAUGHT US.
