How do viewers place themselves within a neutral white cube? How does work function within this cube? How much information should an artist to provide? Is work always inherently about the self? Must an artist's work always be obvious? If an artwork is overlooked by its audience, does it still impact its occupied space? Will an audience reject visually banal objects? Would an audience ignore an object that appears to be nothing? If an object states that it is nothing, does it then actually become nothing? How long will a viewer sit and ponder something seemingly trivial? Is this in itself performative? Must the actions of a performance always be seen? Is the residue of a performance piece entirely different from the action? Is any of this important? I'm still unsure.
