Assignment 3: Parse

I parsed a transcription of an exercise the artist Lucas Samaras made in 1971 where he interviewed himself about his practice, ideologies and tendencies.

My presence is felt as italicized intrusions into his internal dialogue. Sometimes I answered his questions, other times I attempted to dissect his answers and line of thought. Ultimately, I, like Samaras, am thoroughly compromised through the framework of the exercise.
