Dancing with the ars

When you make art you alienate a part of yourself; a part of your subjectivity becomes an object. You put your objectified thoughts and feelings in a public space to be beheld, re-held, re-cognized –cognized [as art?] again– or not.

Observe: the unobserving couple beholding only each other; the alienated artist, drawn not drawing, object not subject; and the  coins–more spill than compensation– that seem to connect the two performances.
