Thinking Places (2010)


The operation of changing state of affairs "N" (saN) so that it reflects value "B" (vB) is represented as vB(saN). The extent to which vB(saN), if known, can be described by affixing variable "p" so that when it is both known and quantifiable, p[vB(saN)].

A particular instance of (saN) can reflect (vB).

In order for vB(saN), every instance need not reflect (vB), so long as p[vB(saN)].

1.If p[vB(saN)] then vB(saN).
2.If p(vB) and p(saN) then p[vB(saN)].
Accordingly, it is proven that:
3. If p(vB) then vB(saN).
When (saN) encompasses occupants of a set of geographical locations, (p) is the artist, and (vB) is the work of art, then each instance of (saN) is a category of potentiality wherein this work of art continues to exist.

The viewers of this work of art are all the occupants of (saN), thus of equal status (p) with the artist, and are therefore equally responsible for the creative act.

This creative act is structured in such a way that knowledge of the existence of the creative act is not necessary for a given (p) to nonetheless make a contribution.
