At the seminar, in a world where systems are seen as intense elements, the production of the system itself as an art object, the facilitation of techniques and methods of image production, the transformation of manipulating images into folk art, and the transformation of the art object into a system as a natural consequence of the artist’s observation that the sole fixed objects observed by the artist are systems or what they imagine in a practice where the artist describes what they see or imagine, and the artist’s abandonment of image production to produce systems as art objects will be discussed.
