Update On Recent “Irritation”
Just a quick update: an email I received from Daniel Nettle. See post http://resolution52.com/irritated-by-this-little-tidbit for initial post.
To my embarrassment I have no idea what I meant either. My excuse is that I am away from home and donâ€™t have access to my copy to check the context, but off the top of my head, who knows? Perhaps it was a pretentious way of emphasising that art creates a shared experience (between Stefan and us, the viewer). On the other hand, donâ€™t underestimate my ability to have just written it down wrong or something. However, in the event that I work out something deeper that I meant, Iâ€™ll let you know.
It’s cool that he took time out of his schedule to address my email, and even cooler that he gave a simple shrug and the “I have no idea either”. But still keeping the option that there may be a deeper answer that without the context of the essay itself he has forgotten.
