ROBERT IRWIN AND THE INEVITABLY SIGNIFYING DISCS


A story about the impossibility of escaping symbolism. The plot, and some of the text, is taken from Lawrence Weschler’s biography of Robert Irwin, Seeing Is Forgetting The Name Of The Thing One Sees. The idea of making “sequential” and “gestalt” versions of the same plot came from analysing the pages produced by my collaborators on Score And Script.
