E: 11 months later… This past halloween, I dressed up as Multi and took a picture in front of an installation of Gonzalez-Torres' Perfect Lovers at MoMA (Figure 8).
In thinking about our conversation beforehand, coupled with our conversation with Sydney King tonight, I am adding the image. I am curious about where the line we draw between concept and instinct may actually be. You can consider the juxtaposition of Multi with Perfect Lovers, for example, where both are steeped in conceptual thinking. But if Multi was made with all the possible punctuation characters, I imagine it would not look as good. Though it might be more conceptually sound. In fact, when making my Multi costume, I looked directly at the source code to see which characters were used.
