Ideas in Opposition

The Communication Syntax

A beginning is a very delicate time.
Where have you come from. Are there many of you. Where will you go next. The statement becomes the question, consequently, we modify communication immediately.

The Object Syntax

Do not approach the art object as you would any other object. The mistake of attempting to determine its purpose will lead you away from seeing it as it is.
Not knowing, the message is or is not important; there will be a cube, there is a cube, there was a cube, there is no cube, there was no cube. Where is the symmetrical three dimensional shape contained by six square faces?

The Simulacrum Syntax

A golden land of opportunity and adventure. A beautiful place out in the country.
The situation of capitalism creates a world parallel to but totally unlike reality, a simulacrum of the true context and content of life.

The Line Syntax

Do not approach the art object as you would any other object. The mistake of attempting to determine its purpose will lead you away from seeing it as it is.

Not knowing, the message is or is not important; there will be a line, there is a line, there was a line, there is no line, there was no line. Where is the straight or curved continuous extent of length without breadth.
