Unplanned, I accompany a spectator on an art visit. We speak each
other before and after we’ve seen the artwork. This experience
results in a text. I will write about the context of the visit, not about the
work itself. These visits together, at different locations and of
different work, become a collection of ways of seeing and put
together an image that reflects the way we see art.
The first A Way of Seeing was created at the TheaterFestival in
