script 5



It is only when a script is performed publicly that (Beckett says) it has been created.
Say your opening sentence backwards:
on so and proposition, our of conditions the are what constitutes - speech our addressee what course, of and, speaking are we which from place very the again and again concerns me to occurs that question the- maybe, follwos afterwards, comes also but before, remains it script,...
and (re)perform Figure 5 as for a mirror...
"Me to occurs that question, the Maybe."
Figure 4, Jasper Johns, 1968
there is something here that seems to always face the object of inquiry... this indistinction. the willed action of bringing something into being is caught with the problem of seeing the back of its head. or something just outside the willed action, always just outside.
what kind of repetition is digital reproduction? "The technical must always be executed with great sensitivity" Kleist (we paraphrased from memory, a INVOLUNTARY(we've snuck up into this time event to fold into our mistake and correct it) memory, a flash, rather than a retrieval.
who is this Nietzschian devil that proposes to repeat every event of a man's life as it had happened? is this an issue of how we take up a role, a character, a task, an inheritance?
Bob Rauschenberg, Factum 1 and 2, 1957.
"It is possible that to seem is to be" Wallace Stevens (from flashing memory)
how can mimicry stand the way a man stands in the sense of being a natural object, like a tree, or are we inevitably fallen creatures (artificial) insofar as we will things into being by an art of sorts...
Every word in this sense might be something like a loss of memory insofar as it is at a distance from the event of its impression. Not being able to figure something out in language is the event in which the tic, the gag, the nervous gesture arises to compensate... leading us to what this could mean once mimicked? or is this part of the cycle/gesturality of all language.
But isn't every word a thought of something that was at one time unsayable in language, was stuttered, and then brought into being-in-language? (the computer just does this carrying-out of the text that we try to pro-duce/produce... ok, we're looping now too.

articulation tears things apart into what we understand as gestures. This detailed vision that kafka uses to describe movements is an articulation of sorts. It is a kind of vision that offers up natural movements into technical elements that become reproducible and become what we understand as gestures. But this is a modern sensibility, as every articulation is something beside something else, the way a film camera breaks images into frames.
We rely on a technical process to see from behind, to see passing, to see something natural about ourselves that we have just lost.
