“When I put a stone on an auto the violence is humorous cartoon violence. I do not think I am personally being violent. (Must I say that I am not advocating violence?) Perhaps in some small way this kind of work is metonymic more that metaphoric. Perhaps the auto comes to represent, not ‘civilization’ but culture in general, or – us. In that case the stone does indeed stand for “nature.” But that is not a translation of the piece. There is no translation of the piece.” [full text here]
