(1) As far as the first of these goes, it might be that a practice just presents the
result: the final image (or images). Here the relative strangeness of the image (its
difference to the what-already-is) is foregrounded. On the other hand, it might lay
out the procedure and protocols that allow this image to step forth from its dark
background. Indeed, it might be that a practice stages this event, or even that practice
is a name for it (and it is in this last sense that art practice is a very particular type
of research programme).
