There is a disjunction between speaking and seeing, between the visible and the articulable: ‘what we see never lies in what we say’, and vice versa. (Gilles Deleuze, Foucault, Editions de Minuit, Paris 1986)
What form does the arrangement take that seeks to show the disjunction between what is seen and what is said?
And which medium would serve its purposes; which would be useless?
Would the gap give rise to a rift or rather to a hinge?
Are we dealing here with the text that recognizes itself in the image, or with the image of a book within the moving picture of the film?
In this broken state, is the medium capable of allowing the vague shimmer of self-reference to unfold, can it briefly perceive its exterior through the constant collision with the borders and the frameworks of other forms of media?
Along which natural lines and borders and up until which place or point would the subjective interlocking gestures and formulations run?
How would one signify a place for which there is no visual equivalent?
What form does representation take if it is constantly stumbling (stammering) over its own terms and conditions?
What form does a representation take that finds it impossible to stop at either the visible or the articulable?
